Sergeant Adam Holcomb Sentenced To Month in Jail & Docked Pay In Danny Chen Case

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.
