WAVY.com reports:  A NAVSEA commanding officer was relieved of his duties permanently Oct. 25 for violating Article 133 of Uniform Code of Military Justice, “displaying conduct that is unbecoming of an officer and a gentlemen,” according to a press release.

While Navy Times reports:  The former commanding officer of the destroyer Momsen has been charged with rape, sodomy and maltreatment and will be court-martialed on Friday, a Navy spokesman confirmed.

DailyAmerican has a piece about Wuterich.  The writer mistakenly believes the SecDef has referred the charges, and mistakenly believes the president and secretary of defense can order the convening authority to drop the charges.
