US Army general to be tried for sex with subordinates

WINSTON-SALEM - A US Army general has been ordered to stand trial on allegations that he used his rank to force female subordinates into improper sexual relationships, military officials said on Tuesday.
Brigadier General Jeffrey Sinclair was sent home from his post as a deputy commanding general in Afghanistan this year after being accused of inappropriate behavior involving four female subordinates and a civilian over the last five years.
One of the women, a captain who Sinclair had requested be assigned to his unit in Afghanistan, said they had a three-year affair, during which she said he made her perform oral sex and threatened her career if she ended the relationship.
