Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller will plead guilty to the charges against him at his Thursday court-martial, according to one of his lawyers.
Scheller will seek to have an honorable discharge from the service, attorney Tim Parlatore said, according to The Washington Post. The officer made headlines after publicly criticizing his superiors during the U.S. military’s withdrawal from Afghanistan in August.
Charges against Scheller include disrespect toward superior commissioned officers, willfully disobeying a superior commissioned officer and conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman.
Parlatore said some details of a pretrial agreement are “still up in the air.”
He added that Scheller will not run from the consequences of his actions.
