Third Trial In Harry Lew Hazing/Suicide Case Finds Lance Corporal Carlos Orozco III Not Guilty

After the hazing and suicide of Harry Lew, three Marines were put on trial. The trial of the first Marine ended up in a demotion and 30 days in prison, and the trial of the second Marine ended in a not guilty verdict. The trial of the third Marine, Lance Corporal Carlos Orozco III, also ended in a not guilty verdict.  Says defense attorney Captain Aaron Meyer: “It’s true Orozco had Lew do push-ups and sit ups. But Orozco was authorized to have a Marine in the squad do physical training like push-ups if the purpose was to maintain good order and discipline, there was no malice involved, and the training didn’t physical exhaust the Marine.”
