A Marine’s Convictions: After flawed military sex assault investigation, Naval Academy teacher fights to prove he’s innocent. But is he? – Washington Post

I found this a compelling read.
One of the most quoted excerpts from Scottish poetry is derived from Canto VI, XVII: Oh, what a tangled web we weave. When first we practise to deceive! Felicia Hemans used two lines from Marmion as an epigraph for her poem of 1827, The Homes of England.
Wow, he really “stepped in it”, and the Post reporter dug his grave with the lies.
Reporter should get a Pullitzer.
As a computer security guru, I doubt the cellphone evidence. Chain of custody was non-existent. The NCIS should have seized all the evidence at time of investigation. It doesn’t say what Stadler’s specialty was but for a USNA graduate there had to be some computer courses there. Fabricating message might not be that hard.
But Thompson was less than 100% truthful so that makes it look bad for him.
What a mess.
