Army Brigadier General Jeffrey Sinclair (R) leaves the courthouse with one of his attorneys Ellen Brotman at Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, North Carolina March 4, 2014. Sinclair's court-martial on a sexual assault charge that could send him to prison for life got under way on Tuesday, one of the few such proceedings against a top U.S. military officer in recent decades. Sinclair, a 51-year-old married father of two, is accused of twice forcing oral sex during a three-year affair he admitted to having with a junior female officer, including during deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.
