Apparently, Morlock's plea agreement is based, in part, on Morlock testifying against his co-accuseds at later courts-martial. Given previous information about Morlock's mental state at the time of the offenses and conflicting statements, I'm curious to see how effective Morlock's testimony will be. Of course, having been a prosecutor, I'm well familiar with the fact that you don't often have the "choir boys" as your star witnesses.I've also found interesting that it appears Morlock had at least 2 high-profile civilian defense counsel representing him, although I'd only seen one in the press until today. Geoffrey Nathan and Frank Spinner represented Morlock at his court-martial. Nathan made some comments about military justice after the sentencing hearing, phrases I'm reasonably certain retired USAF JAG Lieutenant Colonel Spinner didn't approve.
We're trying to get a copy of the pretrial agreement in this case, so, if you have access, feel free to send to email@example.com.
