I got an interesting e-mail last week from Terri G. Sapp.
Sapp is the editor of a website called www.veteransresourceforjustice.org
The site includes a petition on behalf of Jose Miguel Barco Jr., the former Fort Carson soldier convicted of attempted first-degree murder of a pregnant woman injured in an April 25, 2008 drive-by shooting.
On Nov. 29, 2009, 4th Judicial District Judge Larry Schwartz sentenced Barco to 52 years in prison, saying that the former soldier’s actions dishonored the uniform he once wore. See story here.
Barco was one of the soldier featured in my Gazette colleague Dave Philips series “Casualties of War.” Barco also figured in a Frontline documentary on violence committed by soldiers returning from the Iraq War.
