- JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska (AP) - An Alaska-based soldier from California will serve six months in a military prison and then be dismissed from the Army after being convicted of abusive sexual contact and other charges at a court-martial. The Army says in a release that 33-year-old Chief Warrant Officer Guillermo Castillo was convicted Thursday of the contact charge, twice disobeying the order of superiors and driving under the influence. He also will have to forfeit his monthly pay of $3,000 for a year.  Castillo joined the Army in January 2000. He was an enlisted soldier until graduation from Warrant Officer Candidate School in November 2009. He was assigned to the 4th Airborne Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, at the Anchorage base in 2010. He has served one tour in Afghanistan.
