The Defense has no additions, corrections or deletions to the form of the Staff Judge Advocate's Post-Trial Advice. Legal Issues: 3. The Defense has no legal issues to address. Clemency Issues: 4. The Defense requests that you disapprove confinement in excess of 7 months. 5.

Although several cases have been disposed of there is the potential for additional cases to arise in the near future. Specialist Krol's cooperation will be important to the Government's case-in-chief. b. Specialist Krol's conduct after charges were preferred speaks volumes as to the magnitude of his wish to take full responsibility for his actions. First, Specialist Krol signed and submitted and Offer to Plea Guilty only 16 days after charges where preferred. Second, he waived his right to an Article 32 investigation, single handedly saving the Government an enormous amount of time and money. Third, he waived his right to a trial by members. Fourth, he waived his right to be confronted by the witnesses against him. Finally, he waived his right against self-incrimination.

Sir, I am respectfully submitting my request for Clemency. Thank you for taking the time to review my request. On 01 February 2005, I was convicted by special Courts-Martial of Conspiracy to Maltreat Detainees and Maltreatment of Detainees. I plead guilty, and was sentenced to 10 months Confinement, a Bad Conduct Discharge, and Reduction to E-l. 2. I am requesting reduction of Confinement from 10 months to 7 months in order to start the fall semester at the where.(0(7)(05 here I am already enrolled. In order to begin the next semester, I((b)(0) -5 need to be released in early August. 3. I understand that I was convicted of a serious infraction of regulations. At this point in my confinement, I also understand that I was given a lenient sentence. However, I am attempting to begin the next phase of my life as an American citizen. My intent is to become a productive member of this society. 4. My sentence, though lenient, was much more severe than many other soldiers convicted of far worse charges stemming from the same incident. I understand that we were all wrong in our actions, however, I request that you reduce my sentence to make it more proportional to the sentences of those convicted of more serious acts. 5. During my unsworn statement at my Courts-Martial, I apologized to the people of Iraq, as well as to the people of The United States for the harm that I helped cause to our Middle East Foreign Policy. I would like to take this _oppertunit-y to again-apelegize, this time-directly-to-you. sir, for the harm that I caused my command and the Armed Services of the United States.

Hood, Texas Subject Request for Clemency in the Case of Roman Krol Dear General, As a former Commander of Alpha Company, 325" Military intelligence Battalion, and having served extensively with Roman Krol for two years, I would like to be given an opportunity to provide more detailed input relative to this soldiers performance. Roman. Krol is the soldier that does not shy away from his responsibilities. Regardless of what the circumstances were, Roman always put forth the effort to accomplish any task assigned. During the first few months in Iraq, Roman was unable to enter restricted areas to engage in the skills he had been trained for due to minor clearance issues. During those months, Roman accepted every menial job and task that came his way with the same enthusiasm. He never once complained, he did his duty, and was thankful to be able to serve. I have commanded many troops in my 20 years as a soldier. I served as a commander for four and a half years, and Roman, like many other fine soldiers I served with, consistently displayed unique military bearing and professionalism . . .(. Even during the course of his trial, Roman accepted responsibility for his actions. I have worked in the prison Indust") , as a civilian for 17 years. and I have been a soldier for 20 years. I went to Tens to testify of my belief that Roman could be retained as a soldier due to his already dertiOnstrated commitment to this country. I am dismayed as to how things so great of consequence can Caine. to rest on the shoulders of so few young soldiers. While no abuse of detainees is acceptable, aiding the future of this young soldier for actions that warranted an article 15 seemed baldly fitting.Roman came to this country and be joined our military as thanks for his good fortune for becoming a .citizen. ()( 77( Our collective frustration with the facts surrounding this case has much to do with the ((63(6)( -at, apparent lack of oversight at Alm Ghnuli Prison. In all the facilities I represent ind111111111111111t each has ranking supervisors equal to officer rani" within the military who are responsible for the facility during his/her respective shift. While I agree that soldiers must be capable of operating independent of supervision, the acts perpetrated by these unsupervised soldiers could have been mitigated with more stringent oversight on behalf of the leadership of the facility. That said, I ask that leniency be considered for Roman in light of his service to this nation, and his impact on mission success throughout his career. 015585 DOD-026794 U(/VQ/ZUCIO la: 37 IV AK.1../tVLN.

I was a character witness for the defense in the matter of Specialist Roman Krol and T am aware of the charges for which he was convicted. The reason for my willingness to appear on his behalf was my belief that Specialist Krol is worthy of the same loyalty from me that he displayed to the Army in general and my command in particular, during his service. 2. I will not attempt to sway your opinion with many arguments or sentiment, except to say this; on the day I was informed of the order to transfer Specialist Krol to Fort Hood for trial, I could not reach him on the phone. Not more than an hour later, he came to my office with an application for the Active Guard and Reserve program. When I informed him about the trial, he understood that he did something wrong and was willing to face the consequences. If anything speaks of his character, I wish that this display of character, desire to serve and willingness to take responsibility could stand uuL at least as much AS the charges for which he was convicted. 3. I have known Specialist Krol for well over two years and while I cannot say that I know him extremely well, I know him enough dial I believe he deserves a second chance. 4. The point of contact for this action is Capta (6)(7)(6) -2, (b (0- Z L ) v( -y 1 (6)(&) --N (i)(7)(c)- (/) 6)(0-(4X 7A0-zaxe)-2. CP .01,110o1AL FOnfig 40(.7-an) FAX. TRANSMITTAL of pope P.

Hood, Texas Subject: Request for Leniency in the Case of Roman Krol Dear General, As the former First Sergeant of Alpha Company, 325 th Military Intelligence Company, and having served extensively with Roman Krol for over two years, I feel it is my duty to add some positive images of him in this situation. To begin with, let me say that Roman was not a perfect Soldier, those are few and far between. However, he is someone that executed his duty to the best of his ability. When he did not, he was willing to take responsibility for his actions. He also did the most important thing of all; he showed up. When he was called for duty after September 1 1 th, he deployed to Fort Bragg in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. He showed up again when his unit was called for Operation Iraqi Freedom. Even now, to face the consequences of his actions during OIF, he showed up. While this does not excuse any soldier from wrongdoing, I feel that it should be taken into account on his behalf. lthough Roman clearly showed a lack of judgment, he showed up as a Solider willing to do his duty s unit, the Army and his Country. That has to count for something. qieral, I wish you could meet Roman and judge for yourself what type of Soldier and But with as many years of service as you undoubtedly have with the Army, perhaps you someone like him, and know why his peers and superiors who served with him want to iW Soldier in his time of need. I do not wish to burden you overmuch, so I hope that my words, added to those of other ers who have written, might sway you toward leniency in any punishment Roman might receive Re e (b)(7X0 L/ (6)(6) -9 First Sergeantillile(Ret,) _)( 7) cc ) ) (6)(6)-y U.S. Army 015537 DOD-026796 UNITED STATES SERVICE OF POST TRIAL v. 00(7)(0- 5 , (6)(6)-S RECOMMENDATION AND A SPECIALIST Roman Krol Headquarters and Headquarters POST TRIAL RECORD ON Company, III Corps, Fort Hood, Texas 76544-5036 DEFENSE COUNSEL In accordance with R.C.M. 1105 and 1106, Manual for Court-Martial, 2000, a copy of the Post-Trial Recommendation and a copy of the Record of Trial in the case of U.S. v.

The provisions of 10 United States Code, Section 802(d), authorizes ordering Reserve Component (RC) or National Guard (NG) Soldiers to active duty for investigation and disposition of offenses allegedly committed in violation of the UCMJ while in a Title 10 duty status. Only an Active Army General Court-Martial Convening Authority (AA GCMCA) is authorized to involuntarily order to active duty RC or NG Soldiers for, among other things, trial by court-martial. Reserve Component or NG Soldiers ordered to active duty may not be involuntarily confined or deprived of liberty (to include pretrial confinement), or sentenced to confinement until the Secretary of the Army, or his designee, approves the order to active duty. 3. In accordance with the provisions of Army Regulation (AR) 27-10, paragraph 21-3(c), the RC and AA Staff Judge Advocate personnel have consulted with each other concerning Specialist Krol's alleged misconduct while in a Title 10 duty status. 4. As an AA GCMCA, with the authority to involuntarily order this Soldier to active duty for investigation pursuant to Article 32, UCMJ, and for trial by court-martial, I request that you approve my order to recall Specialist Krol to active duty. I am seeking your approval prior to the involuntary order of Specialist Krol to active duty due to the unique circumstances of the case. Specifically, I intend to order Specialist Krol to active duty for investigation into his alleged involvement in detainee abuse pursuant to Article 32, UCMJ, and other UCMJ proceedings as appropriate. These proceedings will likely take place in Iraq, a combat zone. Your approval authorizes Specialist Krol to be eligible for post-trial confinement, if, at a later date, a court-martial adjudges such punishment. 015592 2 0 0 5 0 1 7 9 DOD-026801 FICI-CG SUBJECT: e• uest Approval of Involuntary Order to A tive Dut of S ecialist Roman (00)(0-5 (6)( 7)(0' Krol 325 h Military Intelligence Battalion .

The Army Criminal Investigation Division (CID) investigated several soldiers and civilians assigned to the BCCF. CID specifically investigated the acts of Specialist Krol. The investigation revealed credible evidence suggesting he committed the offenses of conspiracy and maltreatment of detainees while serving at BCCF on active duty in a Title 10 status. Enclosed is a draft charge sheet and a summary of the applicable evidence. 4. Applicable Law.
