Wedding Angela Ehlers and Sgt. Edwin Ehlers II
Listen Online: Fighting B.A.C.K. with Sandra Grazzini-Rucki feat. Angela Ehlers: Military Injustice
Original Air Date: Monday March 27th 6-8 pm E.S.T.
Angela Ehlers joins Sandra Grazzini-Rucki on Fighting B.A.C.K. to talk about the wrongful conviction of Sgt Edwin Ehlers II, her husband, by the United States Marine Corps.
In August 2007, decorated Marine Sgt Edwin Ehlers was convicted of sexual assault. This story happened amid scandals that the military is mishandling allegations of sexual abuse, and an alarming number of military members are coming forward to say that they have been falsely accused of crimes. Angela says her husband was not given a fair trial within the military justice system, as required by law, and was the victim of a kangaroo court. Angela has ample evidence to prove that NCIS agents admitted to tampering with “evidence” used at trial, and there was no physical evidence to support any of the allegations raised. The alleged victim has also come forward to say that she has been coached, and then recanted abuse allegations at trial.
Join Fighting B.A.C.K. as we uncover shocking details about this case, and receive updates from Angela in her fight for justice.
“I have worked tirelessly since August 21, 2007, when I was suddenly thrust into single motherhood with 2 small children and no job, to gain Edwin’s freedom. I have done the many things in the pursuit to set to rights what has happened by writing to the very people who are able to correct their own mistakes and to that of others. These people, who have the power and ability to release Edwin, refuse to even acknowledge they have done anything wrong.
These are the same people who run our Government offices and take our tax-payer dollars for funding. They have sworn an oath to uphold the laws which ensure our freedom, but they have done nothing but show their incompetence and disregard for the “rules” and laws which govern all of us. Most, if not all, lack the backbone to stand up for what is right by correcting this injustice.
No one can ever give Edwin and our children back what has been taken from them because when he comes home, I can’t make our children go back to being the 19 month and 7 month old babies they were when he was wrongfully convicted.
But I can do everything in my power to give them all one thing, his freedom.” ~ Angela Ehlers, 3/30/2012
