Former Green Beret sentenced to 10 years in domestic abuse court-martial | Military Times

A 7th Special Forces Group officer was sentenced to 10 years confinement and dismissal from the Army following a conviction on five counts of assault and two of child endangerment on Wednesday, a 1st Special Forces Command spokeswoman confirmed to Army Times.

Maj. Jason Sartori’s charges included strangling, battery and shoving his then-wife, as well as brandishing a loaded weapon in front of his young son and strangling his wife while she held their infant in her arms, according to his original charge sheet.

“Sartori has the right to present matters of appeal to the General Courts Martial Convening Authority, Maj. Gen. John Deedrick, a process that typically takes three to four months, after which there is an appeals process,” Maj. Beth Riordan said in a statement.

Sartori faced a sixth assault charge for grabbing his wife by the wrists, but the presiding judge found insufficient evidence.
