The testimony came during the third day of a hearing at Fort Bragg to determine whether Sinclair will go on trial for multiple criminal charges including forcible sodomy, wrongful sexual conduct, and adultery, which is a crime under the military justice system. The allegations involve relationships with five women other than his wife.

Sinclair served as a deputy commander of the 82d Airborne Division in Afghanistan until he was relieved of his duties in May amid a criminal investigation.

A female major also testified Wednesday that she sent photos of her breasts and a personal video to Sinclair.

Sinclair potentially faces penalties of up to life in prison if convicted at courts martial on the most serious charges.
