Sgt. Gary Pittman was found not guilty of contributing to the death of Nagem Hatab, a 52 year old Iraqi POW who was beaten to death over the course of two days. Pittman was one of several Marines who took part in the beatings, another was Pfc. William Roy, who testified against him in the court martial.
Pittman was found guilty of assault for the fatal beating, and faces 9 months in military prison and a bad conduct discharge. He will be "sentenced" today.
It seems that no one will be found guilty of murder in this case, because several people were involved in the fatal beating, and the corpse of Hatam was not properly taken care in the days after his murder, and his corpse was the main evidence.
Pittman however seems to have been the lead man in the fatal beating, delivering a rib-crushing karate kick to Hatab's chest, described by an army colonel at the court martial as a "car-crash" like injury.
