A lieutenant colonel who supervises sexual assault prosecution in the Army is under investigation for allegedly sexually assaulting a female colleague, sources have confirmed.
Lt. Col. Joseph “Jay” Morse has been suspended from his job as chief of the Trial Counsel Assistance Program at Fort Belvoir, Va., “pending the outcome of the investigation,” an Army spokesman confirmed via email on Thursday.
The source could not, however, elaborate on the allegations.
“Given that this is still an open case, we are precluded from providing additional information at this point,” the spokesman said.
What on earth is going on with our folks in uniform?
