BARKSDALE AIR FORCE BASE, La. – An attorney for an Illinois fighter pilot who mistakenly bombed Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan in 2002 says he's not surprised the pilot lost an appeal to the Air Force.
Earlier this month, Major Harry Schmidt was found guilty of dereliction of duty.
Lieutenant General Bruce Carlson, who handed down the verdict, said in a letter of reprimand that Schmidt "acted shamefully" in the April 2002, bombing, which left four Canadians dead.
East St. Louis, Ill. – Former St. Louis Blues player Mike Danton admitted Friday that he sought to have his agent killed.
It was part of a plot that unraveled when the would-be hit man turned out to be a police informant.
Danton had been scheduled for trial this fall in East St. Louis, with co-defendant Katie Wolfmeyer. Instead he pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiracy to cause a person to travel in interstate commerce to commit murder.
