Three Days In August
 

A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier's Fight for Military Justice

Authored by Bob McCarty

U.S. Army Special Forces Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart admitted to having a one-night stand with a 28-year-old German woman the night of Aug. 22, 2008. She did, too. Both knew sex was part of the plan when they left the discotheque near Stuttgart. Two months later, however, her story changed and the highly-decorated combat veteran found himself facing rape and kidnapping charges.

Despite a lack of both physical evidence and eyewitnesses to the alleged crimes, it took only three days for the panel to find Stewart guilty of numerous offenses - including aggravated sexual assault, kidnapping, forcible sodomy and assault and battery - and sentence him to eight years behind bars.

Incredibly, the conviction was based almost entirely on the testimony of Stewart's accuser, a one-time mental patient who, with the backing of the German government, refused to allow her medical records to be entered as evidence.

Today, Stewart's fighting for a new trial so he can shed the "sexual offender" label that will stay with him the rest of his life if justice remains out of reach.

Based on extensive interviews and never-before-published details taken from the actual Record of Trial, "Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier's Fight for Military Justice" by Bob McCarty paints a portrait of military justice gone awry that's certain to make your blood boil.
