A Soldier assigned to the 14th Military Police Brigade here is scheduled for court-martial Sept. 22 at Fort Leonard Wood.

The accused, Staff Sgt. Angel Sanchez, is charged with:

- One specification of assault;

- One specification of attempting to commit indecent viewing;

- One specification of attempting to commit abusive sexual contact;
