Prisoner abuse at Abu Ghurayb Prison
27 September 2005 -- A military jury in Texas has convicted U.S. soldier Lynndie England of six charges stemming from prisoners abuse in Baghdad's Abu Ghurayb jail.
The 22-year-old England was found guilty of one count of conspiracy, four counts of maltreating detainees, and one count of committing an indecent act. She was acquitted on a second conspiracy count.
Her case now moves into the sentencing phase, which will determined by the same jury. She faces a maximum 10 years in prison.
Prosecutors used graphic photos of England to support their contention that she was a key figure in the abuse conspiracy. One photo shows England holding a naked detainee on a leash. In others, she smiles and points to prisoners in humiliating poses.
