    TX - Lynndie England for mistreatment of Abu Ghraib detainees, Fort Hood, 2003

    More at Link

    FORT HOOD, Texas - Prosecutors in Pfc. Lynndie England's prison abuse case portrayed her in closing arguments Monday as an eager participant with a "sick" sense of humor, while defense attorneys described her as a weak-minded pawn trying to appease a sadistic boyfriend

    A jury of Army officers was to start deliberating Monday afternoon. England, one of the most visible figures in the Abu Ghraib scandal, faces up to 11 years in prison if convicted on seven counts of conspiracy and maltreatment of detainees at the Iraq prison in 2003.

    Jurors heard competing descriptions of the 22-year-old reservist from Fort Ashby, W.Va., during closing arguments.

    Just once I'd like to see someone take responsibility for their own actions. If I were this girl's attorney I would have just had her throw herself on the mercy of the court and plead to some sort of battle-stress. The "she was just like a puppy" excuse does nothing for me.

    Yep, I agree Jeana. The pictures I saw of her she looked nothing like a puppy. She seemed to be enjoying herself and I saw no gun pointed at her in those photos.

    FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) -- Army Pfc. Lynndie England, whose smiling poses in photos of detainee abuse at Baghdad's Abu Ghraib prison made her the face of the scandal, was convicted Monday by a military jury on six of seven counts.

    England, 22, was found guilty of one count of conspiracy, four counts of maltreating detainees and one count of committing an indecent act. She was acquitted on a second conspiracy count.

    The jury of five male Army officers took about two hours to reach its verdict. Her case now moves into the sentencing phase, which will determined by the same jury. She faces a maximum 10 years in prison.

    Lynddie England Badly Burned in Prison

    http://today.reuters.com/news/newsar...AND.xml&rpc=22

    snip

    Lynndie England, the U.S. soldier incarcerated for abusing detainees in Iraq, was badly burned in a prison kitchen accident, her mother said on Thursday.
    England, who was pictured holding a leash to a naked, hooded Iraqi inmate at the Abu Ghraib prison, was sentenced in September to three years for her part in the abuse scandal that sparked worldwide outrage. She is now confined to the Naval Consolidated Brig Miramar in San Diego, California.

    England works in the prison's kitchen, where she suffered second- and possibly third-degree burns from being splattered with grease over her chest as she removed chickens from a tall oven, her mother, Terrie England, said in an interview.

    "She was in severe pain," she said of the December 14 incident. "Everybody in the prison heard the scream."

    Terrie England, who is caring for England's infant during her incarceration, faulted prison officials for not giving better treatment during a visit to the emergency room.

    Speaking here as a short person, I thought she was also short. If she was removing something from a TALL oven, I can see a problem there. Of course, this is all speculation, as I have none of the facts, just questions.

    She is very short; she should have asked for a step stool or gotten a taller person to do it. I've never heard of an oven that tall, though, where you're cooking chickens. It is very hard to lift something heavy DOWN, you can easily drop it.

    Hmm. Don't think she's quite "all there", and also they may want a way to get her out of prison. Second degree can heal; third degree burns are pretty bad and can scar.

    Marthatex,
    I have lived with a built-in oven and had to have help removing items heavier than a cake. A turkey could have been fatal, I'm afraid.
    Also, I am unfortunately familiar with 2nd and 3rd degree burns, as my son was burned as a child (gasoline & matches at a neighbor's). I guess this is the reason this article caught my attention so much. Not making any excuses for anything that has happened with Ms. England.
