The first trial of those court-martialed relating to the death of Private Danny Chen ended with Sergeant Adam Holcomb being sentenced to a month in prison and getting docked a month in pay. Holcomb was found guilty of maltreatment of a subordinate and assault culminated in battery. He was cleared of negligent homicide charges. His attorney stated during closing arguments: “He will always have the stigma of being convicted at a court-martial. Suffice it to say, Sgt. Holcomb has been punished enough.” The Chen family is said to be waiting for all of the trials to finish before making any statement.
