US Soldiers Gets 25 Years In Prison For Killing Al Qaeda, Evidence Withheld

Sunday, April 5, 2009

Lieutenant Michael Behenna was sentenced to 25 years for killing a known Al-Qaeda member in Iraq, Ali Mansur, who allegedly had attacked and killed two U.S. soldiers. The government intentionally withheld evidence during the trial that would have kept Michael from prison:

Prosecution expert Dr. Herbert MacDonnell initiated contact with defense attorneys explaining his agreement with the testimony of Lt. Behenna and his presentation to prosecutors supporting Lt. Behenna’s version of events.

** Dr. MacDonnell is not called to testify in the case.

** Jack Zimmermann, defense counsel, asks prosecutors if they have any exculpatory evidence that should be provided to the defense (referring to Dr. MacDonnell’s demonstration). Prosecutors deny having any such evidence.

** Prosecutors withholding of this evidence allowed them to argue that Lt. Behenna executed Ali Mansur while seated when the forensic experts, including Dr. MacDonnell, agree that Ali was standing with his arms outstretched when shot

**Lt. Behenna is convicted of unpremeditated murder and assault.
