Fourth And Fifth Soldiers Sentenced In Danny Chen Case

The fourth and fifth soldiers tried in association with Danny Chen’s suicide have been sentenced: Sergeant Travis Carden was convicted of hazing and maltreating Danny Chen, was demoted and had to forfeit two thirds of a months pay. Specialist Thomas Porter Curtis IV pleaded guilty to hazing, maltreatment, and assault in exchange for prosecutors dropping a negligent homicide charge and agreeing to testify in other cases. He was sentenced to three months in prison and demotion to private. Amazingly enough, both Carden and Curtis will still be in the army.
