Top brass military misconduct investigated

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- More than two-dozen military top brass have been under fire for misconduct.

30 U.S. generals and admirals have been investigated for personal misconduct since October 2012.

According to the Washington Post one of the cases involves a brigadier general from Fort Jackson, South Carolina.

He publicly warned his troops that the army had zero tolerance for sexual harassment and sexual assault.

At the time he himself was under investigation for sexual assault.

In November 2012, General David Petraeus, the CIA director and most renowned army general of his generation, resigned over an adulterous affair.

The U.S. Defense Department estimated that reported cases of sexual abuse in the military increased by nearly 10,000 cases from 2011 to 2012.

In December, President Obama signed a bill into law that would bar military commanders from overturning jury convictions in sexual assault and rape cases.
