"I appeal to you to find a compassionate resolution to a difficult situation. Please drop the charges against Spc. Hutchinson."
Dear Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Phillip,
I am shocked and disappointed that four separate court martial
charges have been brought against Specialist Alexis Hutchinson, a
single parent with a one-year old son, who missed deployment in early
November 2009 when her childcare plan fell through at the last moment,
due to circumstances beyond her control.
In anticipation of deployment in early October 2009, Spc Hutchinson
did travel to California and left her son Kamani with her mother
Angelique Hughes in Oakland, California, as per her Army family care
After caring for Kamani for a week, Ms. Hughes realized that she was
unable to care for the infant in addition to her other duties to a
special-needs daughter, an ailing mother, and an ailing sister. Ms.
Hughes immediately contacted her daughter and her Ft. Stewart chain of
command to inform them that she was simply unable to care for Kamani as
planned. Ms. Hughes returned Kamani to her mother at Ft. Stewart.
The Army initially allowed for an extension of time to find another
option; however, the extension was revoked. Spc Hutchinson understood
that that Kamani would be taken away from her and placed in the county
foster care system. Facing the real risk of permanently loosing her
parental rights, Spc Hutchinson admittedly was AWOL for approximately
24 hours and missed her unit’s deployment.
I appeal to you to find a compassionate resolution to a difficult situation. Please drop the charges against Spc. Hutchinson.
