9-9-05 - For the second time in two days, an Army reservist has been acquitted of charges that he beat an Afghan detainee who later died and then lied about it.
A military jury took about three hours to clear Sgt. Darin Broady, 26, of Jeffersonville, Ind., of charges of aggravated assault, maltreatment and making a false official statement.
Relatives and friends crowded into the small Fort Bliss courtroom clapped, sighed aloud and cried as the verdict was read.
Lt. Col. Mark Sposato ordered that they remain silent or he would clear all the spectators from the courtroom.
"This is not some kind of contest," he gruffly told the audience.
