If he wasn't GUILTY he wouldn't have agreed to a deal... What a disgrace! Got KICKED OUT of the military like the disgrace he is!

The Army already said the child porn charges do NOT stem from the pictures of his niece! Its a crying shame he is back on american soil when REAL soldiers are still risking their lives.

The great pedo hunt that Bush's admin started (most folks do not know it was a fed employee WITHIN the investigation teams tasked with tracking this stuff who downloaded 60 Giga bytes of it-movies and pics- to the file sharing services), and then the rest of the feds, unaware of the corruption of justice that this illegal government action comprised, went to town tracking it. The feds slanted the stats, after they filled the net with it, playing "are you askeered?" with it's citizenry.
Arguing that there ore tens of thousands of pedos out there is kin of like arguing Pete Townsend represented the average offender. They layed up for a high profile arrest to hang their success hat on.
Then they argued that all pics of kids belied offense, encouraging WalMart and the like to report, with horrific, life changing arrests of innocent parents. If you believe that pics of a niece in a bathing suit which do not focus on body parts used for sex are kid porn, you also believe 911 was all done by foreigners, and fires actually caused those buildings to melt, never mind the advanced thermite, folks.
Obama, just like freemason Bush, wants to change the subject- anything but the wars he said he'd end, Gitmo closing, and his lies about the Patriot Act being rescinded.
All lies, brothers, designed to move us off what's important- us controlling our government, and not the other way around. so don't let them punk you. They lie about EVERYTHING.

Rod, as a parent, I realize that you want to believe your child. However, there comes a time when you need to look at facts. Although the Army does make mistakes, they would not discharge him over adult porn. Almost every soldier has porn while oversees, even though it's prohibited. The Army knows that, and they aren't discharging everyone else because of it. They would merely give them a slap on the wrists. I'm sure that several people have reviewed his case and looked over the files on his computer. They had to have found something OTHER than adult porn. If I were you, I would dig a lot deeper than believing your own son.. Just as the Army isn't perfect, neither is your son. Even if he were in the wrong, would he really admit it if he didn't have to? No! He doesn't want to look worse than he already does in the public eye. If he's not guilty, why else would he have signed a deal?

Really Rod? If you had done all your homework, then you would have known the pictures in question weren't the ones of his niece.

So the ARMY never makes mistakes...right?? but look at FORT HOOD...that sounds like a mistake for the ARMY...and how many other mistakes have they made that we will never see or hear about.. But lets just keep playing the game of follow the leader so you don't get lost on the way.

Well, if the Army had him on child porn, they would have charged him with child porn. In Afganistan, adult porn is a jailable offense. I believe Mr. Miller could have been jailed in Afganistan if he would have not have taken the dishonerable discharge since this happened on Afganistan soil. Would you want to take a chance and possibly serve in a Afganistan prison, if you were not guilty or would you plead out on a lesser charge and go home? He pleaded out on misconduct, not child porn. Regardless, this man served our country and was willing to die for our porotection. Show him some respect.

So, where was the child porn pics? Did they disappear? If the Army found porn it would be evidence and they would have produced it.

Since when are photos of someone's niece playing ''model'' in a bathing suit child porn? If that is the ''true nature'' of the material in question ...

I think the prosecution has a pedophilic obsessed mindset -- them and Senator Orin Hatch (R) from Utah (18 U.S.C.§2257-A). They see witches and wish to divert attention of their inadequacies by burning them at the stake -- throw-back to the Salem Witch trials -- this is the progression of mankind?

Child abuse is one thing -- fabricated accusations are another ...

Chapter 10
Discharge in Lieu of Trial by Court-Martial
10–1. General
a. A soldier who has committed an offense or offenses, the punishment for which under the UCMJ and the Manual
for Courts-Martial, 2002 (MCM 2002), includes a bad conduct or dishonorable discharge, may submit a request for
discharge in lieu of trial by court-martial.
(1) The provisions of RCM 1003(d), MCM 2002 do not apply to requests for discharge per this chapter unless the
case has been referred to a court-martial authorized to adjudge a punitive discharge.
(2) The discharge request may be submitted after court-martial charges are preferred against the soldier or, where
required, after referral, until final action by the court-martial convening authority.
(3) A soldier who is under a suspended sentence of a punitive discharge may likewise submit a request for discharge
in lieu of trial by court-martial.
b. The request for discharge in lieu of trial by court-martial does not prevent or suspend disciplinary proceedings.
Whether proceedings will be held in abeyance pending final action on a discharge request per this chapter is a matter to
be determined by the commander exercising general court-martial jurisdiction over the individual concerned.
c. If disciplinary proceedings are not held in abeyance, the general court-martial convening authority may approve
the soldier’s request for discharge in lieu of trial by court-martial after the soldier has been tried. In this event, the
officer who convened the court in his/her action on the case should not approve any punitive discharge adjudged. The
officer should approve only so much of any adjudged sentence to confinement at hard labor or hard labor without
confinement as has been served at the time of the action.
