FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) - An Army brigadier general has been charged with forcible sodomy and other offenses after being sent home from Afghanistan.

The Fayetteville Observer ( bit.ly/VIu9AG) reported Wednesday that Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair faces possible courts martial on charges that include forced sex, possessing pornography and alcohol while deployed, engaging in inappropriate relationships and misusing a government travel charge card.

Sinclair was sent back to Fort Bragg this spring while serving as deputy commander of the 82nd Airborne Division headquarters in Afghanistan.

Fort Bragg spokesman Col. Kevin Arata confirmed that the charges were filed Wednesday morning.

Army officials have scheduled a news conference for 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.
