ABOUT THE CASE
On 10 November 2011 a military jury convicted SSG Gibbs of fifteen charges. Along with three murder charges, he was convicted of conspiring to kill innocent civilians, assaulting a junior-ranking soldier, keeping body parts from corpses and illegally possessing “off the books” weapons. The military jury sentenced SSG Gibbs to life in prison with eligibility for parole in 10 years.
In March 2016, Gibbs attorney filed a request to consider new evidence that one of the killings was due to legitimate combat engagement. In June 2016, the military appeals court ordered a fresh look into the evidence.
We are fighting to reunite Calvin Gibbs with a young son who loves his father and wants nothing more than to have him come home.
