Oklahoma Army Lt. Michael Behenna's appeal of the 15-year sentence
for the murder of a man he felt was a terrorist in Iraq two years ago goes before an Army Clemency and Parole Board on Thursday.
The board could possibly reduce his sentence. Then on December 9th, an Army Court of Criminal Appeals will hear Behenna's oral arguments on the appeal of his conviction. His attorneys contend the soldier did not get a fair trial. They claim prosecutors failed to tell defense attorneys about comments from a forensics expert that supported Behenna's version of the 2008 killing.
Behenna's parents, Vicki and Scott Behenna will go before the Clemency and Parole board to make arguments that their son's sentence should be reduced.
