FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) — Defense witnesses are testifying about the character of an Army general who admitted to inappropriate relationships with three subordinates as his sentencing draws to a close.

Col. Kenneth Kelly was among the final group of witnesses called on Wednesday to discuss serving in the Army with Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair.

Kelly says Sinclair was a selfless leader who was more concerned about his soldiers than his bosses.

The defense plans to call about five more witnesses and deliver a closing statement. It's not clear when the judge will rule.

Prosecutors have countered some of the witnesses by asking them whether a true leader would ask subordinates for nude pictures.

Sinclair had been accused of sexual assault during his affair with one subordinate, but the charges were dropped as part of a plea deal. Adultery is a violation of military law.
