An Army officer tried in connection with interrogation abuses at Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison will not spend any time in jail.
Army Lt. Col. Steven Jordan received a reprimand from a military jury for disobeying an officer’s order not to discuss the investigation, the Washington Post reports. It is one of the lightest punishments available.
Jordan was acquitted yesterday of more serious charges involving treatment of detainees and supervision of soldiers who conducted interrogations.
