Court-Martial Ordered for Benderman

A military convening authority has ordered a new court-martial for Sgt. Kevin Benderman, who faces charges of desertion.

Benderman was supposed to face-court martial last month, but a judge ruled the military investigator may have been biased in her recommendations.

Benderman says his previous duty in Iraq led him to request conscientious objector status weeks before his unit deployed.

No word yet when the court-martial will convene.
