Panetta: Army should release cop killer's records

Jeremy Goulet was a helicopter pilot in Hawaii in 2006 when the Army court-martialed him on charges of raping two women

Associated Press

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says the military should release court-martial records of a former soldier who shot and killed two Santa Cruz police detectives.

Jeremy Goulet was a helicopter pilot in Hawaii in 2006 when the Army court-martialed him on charges of raping two women.

The charges were later dropped in exchange for an "other than honorable" discharge in 2007.  It's not clear why, and the military records are not public.

Goulet faced multiple criminal charges in several states in the following years. On Feb. 26, 2013 he was killed in a shootout after he gunned down two police detectives.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports Wednesday that Panetta says Goulet's case underscores the military's tendency to "look the other way" in sexual assault cases.
