Seattle Attorney to Represent Soldier Who Allegedly Shot 16 Afghans

Seattle defense attorney John Henry Browne said on Thursday he will be representing the American soldier suspected of killing 16 civilians in Afghanistan. Browne said he talked to the soldier, based out of Joint Base Lewis-McChord, on the phone and has made arrangements to meet with him soon, possibly in Kuwait. The soldier has been out of Afghanistan and in an undisclosed location. Browne said the soldier is “from here, and he knows who I am.” Browne has represented a number of high-profile defendants.
