Haditha Marine Charged With Involuntary Manslaughter

More on the Haditah case (h/t Hot Air)

Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich, the accused leader in the 2005 killings of 24 Iraqi civilians in Haditha, will face voluntary manslaughter charges but not more serious murder charges, the U.S. Marines said on Monday.

“The charges referred against SSgt Wuterich are voluntary manslaughter, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, dereliction of duty and obstruction of justice,” Camp Pendleton, California, said in a statement.

On one hand, that is pretty good, but, as Allahpundit points out, Wuterich could still be facing quite a bit of jail time.
