SGT Travis Bishop, a Fort Hood, Texas soldier who thought that Victor Agosto had the right idea and decided to miss movement for his deployment to Afghanistan like Agosto was court martialed today. According to Courage to Resist, he was sentenced to a year in prison.
That’s the only place I can find the outcome of the court martial, I guess they’d know.
Bishop thought he was going to get 30 days like Agosto, but Travis didn’t decide to miss movement until the day his unit pulled out, then he was AWOL for a week after they left. Agosto, on the other hand, made his intentions clear before his unit left. And Bishop made the mistake of blabbering about how he’d been inspired by Agosto. I guess that’s worth 11 months.
I’m sure that Bishop had been listening to his idiot lawyer, James Branum, who has successfully had each of his defendants imprisoned. Why those clowns keep hiring that doofus is beyond me.
