Other Abu Gharib convictions

It appears that Lynndie England got a longer sentance because she did not plead guilty. She did plead guilty originally but the judge threw it out based on Graner's testimony.

From Boston Globe:

Eight other Army reservists have been convicted of abusing detainees at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq:

Former corporal Charles Graner of Uniontown, Pa., was found guilty in January. He is serving a 10-year prison term. Prosecutors described Graner as the ringleader of the group of guards who mistreated Iraqis.

Former specialist Megan Ambuhl of Centreville, Va., a former guard, pleaded guilty in November 2004 to failing to prevent or report maltreatment of prisoners. She was discharged from the Army without prison time.

Former specialist Sabrina Harman of Lorton, Va., was found guilty in May of conspiracy, maltreating detainees, and dereliction of duty. She was sentenced to six months in prison.
Former staff sergeant Ivan Frederick of Buckingham, Va., was sentenced to 8 1/2 years in October after pleading guilty to conspiracy, dereliction of duty, maltreatment of detainees and other charges.

Former specialist Jeremy Sivits of Hyndman, Pa., pleaded guilty in May 2004 to four counts, for taking pictures of naked Iraqi prisoners being humiliated. He was sentenced to one year in prison.

Former specialist Roman Krol of Randolph, Mass., admitted pouring water on naked detainees and forcing them to crawl around the floor. Krol was sentenced in February to 10 months in prison.

Former specialist Armin Cruz of Plano, Texas, pleaded guilty to conspiracy and mistreating prisoners and was sentenced in September 2004 to eight months in prison.

Former sergeant Javal Davis of Roselle, N.J., was sentenced to six months in prison after pleading guilty in February to assault, dereliction of duty, and lying to Army investigators.
