Fort Rucker Rape Trial

A National Guard officer from Nashville testified at his court-martial trial at Fort Rucker. He says a night of flirting, dancing and kissing led to consensual sex, not the rape he's accused of.

First Lieutenant Mike Hall told a military judge that then First Lt. Jennifer Dyer invited him into her room.

Dyer, who was a National Guard soldier from New Jersey at the time, testified earlier that Hall forced her to have sex twice that night at Camp Shelby in Mississippi.

Dyer said Monday that she refused to return to Camp Shelby, missing her unit's deployment to Iraq. After being given two weeks convalescent leave by the Army following her rape claim.

Hall’s attorneys earlier told the court Dyer's account was a last-ditch effort to avoid deployment and get out of the Army after her earlier resignation request was denied
