Stuart Scheller

Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller pleaded guilty this morning to all six charges and specifications levied against him by the military following his public comments that bashed the final American withdrawal in August of combat forces from Afghanistan.

As part of his plea agreement, Scheller waived his right to a jury trial.

Prior to the court-martial, Scheller attorney Tim Parlatore told the news media Scheller accepted responsibility for his actions and the main issue remaining was a decision on what would be an appropriate punishment.

Parlatore said he expects Stuart’s punishment will include a letter of reprimand and will not include confinement. He expects the proceedings to conclude today.

Parlatore is a civilian lawyer whose firm is based in New York.
