WUERZBURG, Germany (AP) – A U.S. Army medic who refused to return to Iraq because of his opposition to the war was convicted of desertion at his court martial Tuesday, and could face as long as seven years in prison.

Spc. Agustin Aguayo, whose case has been closely watched by American anti-war groups, opened the one-day proceeding on a U.S. base in Germany by admitting he intentionally avoided his deployment back to Iraq.

Aguayo has said in the past that he had refused to return to Iraq because he believes war is immoral, and that he could “no longer go down this path.”

Though Aguayo only pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of being absent without leave, Judge Col. R. Peter Masterton sided with prosecutors in finding him guilty of the more severe charge of desertion. He also was found guilty of missing a troop deployment.

  1. Conscientious objector, well now, and war is immoral? So that is what cowards are saying today. Sounds like the old “better Red than dead” folk of the fifties and sixties. A coward by any other name would still be called Aguayo. I was a medic in Vietnam. Fear, I did feel. Cowardice, I did not. The Army should have given him 7 years then sent him back to the land of his ancestors.
