JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD -- A C-17 pilot who was charged with dereliction of duty and reckless endangerment in a paratrooper's death has been found not guilty at his Air Force court-martial.
Staff Sgt. Frances Kriss says a panel of officers found Capt. Jared Foley not guilty of all charges Friday at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
The 17-year veteran could have faced more than two years in prison if convicted for approving an airdrop without command approval July 10, 2011, at Fort Harrison's Marshall Field in Montana.
Sgt. Francis Campion of Holidaysburg, Pa., was blown off course and landed on a building outside the drop zone and died. Campion was training with the West Virginia National Guard.
Foley serves with the 62nd Airlift Wing at Lewis-McChord, which operates 51 of the C-17 transport jets.
