Staff Sgt. Jesse J. Solis of Fort Sill, Okla., was pretty much given a “wink-and-a nod” by a military court today, March 5, when his conviction of assaulting his two former wives only busted him one rank and forfeited him $1,500 in pay for two consecutive months.

Lt. Colonel Patricia H. Lewis handed down the sentence which still goes before Fort Sill’s commanding general, who could lessen the punishment even further.

The separate assaults allegedly took place in Memphis, Tenn., and somewhere near Lawton, Okla., spanning the years between 2008 and 2010.

The court martial that began yesterday morning with eight charges against Solis, including threats of murder, sodomy, assault, sexual assault, and rape, ended today with only one conviction.

Solis was found guilty of assault and battery in “violation of Article 128 of the Uniformed Code of Military Justice.

Solis, a five year Army veteran, was not given jail time according to court documents.

Examiner's Note: On the face of this conviction, it seems as if the military continues it's pattern of turning a blind eye to the victims of sexual assault and giving a pass to the offenders.
