FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) The sentencing hearing for an Army general who admitted to emotionally harming a subordinate during an affair will continue Tuesday at Fort Bragg.

Prosecutors have a few more witnesses Tuesday to testify against Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair.

Sinclair's lawyers will argue that the 27-year veteran shouldn't go to jail. Defense attorneys say they have about 20 witnesses. Sinclair will read a statement and could testify.

The woman who accused Sinclair of forcing himself on her testified Monday that she can't trust anyone and fears her superiors are always going to take advantage of her.

The most serious charges against Sinclair were dropped. He still faces a maximum of more than 21 years in prison, but will likely face far less time and may not go to jail at all.
