    Reserve Captain Annemette Hommel and the four other soldiers could face up to one year in prison if found guilty of breaking military law during interrogations last year, the news agency reported on Friday.

    Hommel was sent home in July from Iraq, before her tour of duty was up, after former unit colleagues complained about the way she interrogated prisoners. She has denied the abuse accusations.
