Marine Stuart Scheller Attorney: Asking for Honorable Discharge.

U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller has been ordered by a military judge on Friday to forfeit one month’s worth of pay, or $5,000, and receive a letter of reprimand in exchange for his guilty plea after posting several videos on social media where he criticized top military leaders over their handling of the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.

His attorney tells Newsmax the next challenge will be in the determination of what type of discharge he’ll receive.

“We’re asking for, of course, an honorable discharge, but it could be a general discharge under honorable conditions,” Scheller’s lawyer, Tony Buzbee, told Newsmax’s “National Report” in an interview before the decision was handed down. “I’m really hoping for an honorable discharge because he was an honorable Marine and is an honorable Marine.”
