FORT BRAGG, N.C. — Defense witnesses are testifying about the character of an Army general who admitted to inappropriate relationships with three subordinates as his sentencing draws to a close.

Col. Kenneth Kelly was among the final group of witnesses called on Wednesday to discuss serving in the Army with Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair.

Kelly says Sinclair was a selfless leader who was more concerned about his soldiers than his bosses.

The defense plans to call about five more witnesses and deliver a closing statement. It's not clear when the judge will rule.

Sinclair had been accused of sexual assault during his affair with one subordinate, but the charges were dropped as part of a plea deal. Adultery is a violation of military law.
