FORT BRAGG -- It took less than ten minutes for Colonel James Pohl to issue General Jeffrey Sinclair his sentence void of prison time Thursday. Then, a courtroom divided, with Sinclair hugging and crying with his defense in relief. Army prosecutors were visibly disappointed. Sinclair addressed the media following the sentencing, and said he just wanted to go home.

Sinclair said, "It's been a very difficult time for me and my family, it really has. The system worked, I've always been proud of my Army. All I want to do now is, go up north, hug my kids, and see my wife."

Sinclair, 51, pleaded guilty to adultery, maltreatment of his main accuser, obstruction of justice, and several other lesser charges than sex assault. Those assault charges were dropped over the weekend, as a part of a plea deal.
