be tried on charges arising from the scandal was con victed of all five charges and faces up to 15 years behind bars Four other soldiers have pleaded guilty in the scandal Graner stood at attention and looked straight ahead without expression as each verdict was read The jury took less than five hours to reach the verdict and began the sentencing phase Friday evening The prosecu tion wrapped up its sentencing testimony quickly but Gra ners attorney called seven wit nesses before testimony ended for the night and planned at least two more today It was unclear whether Graner who did not testify during the trial would be one of them The verdict came after a trial in which pros ecutors depicted Graner as a sadistic soldier who took great pleasure in seeing detainees was accused of stacking naked prisoners in a human pyra mid and later ordering them to masturbate while other soldiers took photographs He also allegedly punched one man in the head hard enough to knock him out and struck an injured prisoner with a col lapsible metal stick The jury of four Army offi cers and six senior enlisted men rejected the defense argu ment that Graner and other guards were merely follow ing orders from intelligence agents at Abu Ghraib when they roughed up the detainees Graner a 36yearold reservist from Uniontown faced 10 counts under five separate charges Assault conspiracy maltreat
