FORT BRAGG, N.C. -- Testimony is expected to resume at Fort Bragg to determine whether a U.S. Army general is to be court martialed on allegations of sexual misconduct involving five women.

Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair is charged with crimes including forcible sodomy, wrongful sexual conduct, engaging in inappropriate relationships and misusing a government travel charge card.

Sinclair had served as the deputy commander of the 82nd Airborne Division in Afghanistan until May, when he was sent home in the midst of a criminal probe.

That investigation was launched by Sinclair's former commanding officer, who said a female captain tearfully informed him of her 3-year affair with Sinclair.

Maj. Gen. James Huggins testified Monday the woman told him Sinclair had forced her to have sex with both physical force and by threatening her career.
