Mass. National Guard chief resigns after assault probe

The commander of the Massachusetts National Guard, Brigadier General Joseph C. Carter, agreed to resign Monday after military investigators found probable cause that he indecently assaulted a subordinate while on a training exercise in Florida in 1984.

Carter, who has been on administrative leave since March, could not be charged criminally because the statute of limitations has long since expired on the 28-year-old ­incident.
