Pfc. Lynndie England will plead guilty to seven military criminal counts related to the abuse of Iraqis at the Abu Ghraib prison, where she was stationed as a clerk as part of the 372nd Military Police Company. The abuse at Abu Ghraib became infamous internationally when photos, including some showing England, detailing the abuse and humiliation of detainees were released publicly. She faces a sentence of up to 11 years in military prison under the charges.
SAN ANTONIO — Pfc. Lynndie England will plead guilty to abusing Iraqi detainees in Abu Ghraib prison, her lawyer said late Friday, months after photos of her sexually humiliating inmates made her the face of a scandal that damaged the credibility of the U.S. military.

England will plead guilty in a military court Monday to seven of the nine counts against her: two counts of conspiracy, four counts of maltreating prisoners and one count of dereliction of duty, said Rick Hernandez, her civilian lawyer.

England, a 22-year-old Army reservist who was a clerk at the Baghdad-area prison, was scheduled to go to trial Tuesday at Fort Hood.

This woman was obviously a more-than-willing participant in this abuse scandal and seemed to quite enjoy it actually. She and her co-conspirators' crimes not only abused Iraqis but brought disgrace to the U.S. military. I think 11 years in prison is way to good for her.
