Army To Prosecute N.Y. Burglary, Assault Case
The Army will prosecute 11 Fort Drum soldiers accused of assaulting a military couple in retaliation for the arrest of another soldier.
The Jefferson County District Attorney's office agreed to transfer the case to Fort Drum officials, who asked Tuesday for jurisdiction to be transferred to the military courts.
Nine of the soldiers still in custody have been transferred to military pre-confinement in Onondaga County, said Fort Drum spokesman Ben Abel. The two other soldiers were released on their own recognizance and are currently under the authority of their unit. Read more

Thank god someone has the good sense to step in and do something about the crazy things going on up there at FT Drum, unlike the unsolved murder of Richard Therrein. What's going on at that base???????? Soldiers should all be like brothers!

I agree w/ u, Sandy! But I won't let those assholes get away w/ what they did to Richie! And I won't let Fort Drum rest until someone pays for what they did to him! Civilians or not! Not just the soldiers that were there will pay. The so-called "ladies" at that house will go down, too! I will sue everyone for wrong-full death! I don't want the money, because it will not bring back Richie, but I will sue them anyway! Richie is probably laughing at me right now! He would want his brothers and sisters to have the money and they will! They will pay! You'll see! That's a promise! Call me!

I think its great that military is handling the case, at least soldier wouldnt have to worry about Jefferson Country Injustice and corruption, not to mention a general hatred of Ft. Drum Soldiers from the local of that community.
I have never seen any town more scandalous than watertown, NY.
