Ten potential jurors - all two-star and three-star generals - were considered on Tuesday for the sexual assault court-martial of Army Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair at Fort Bragg.

Sinclair, a former deputy commander of the 82nd Airborne, is charged with forcible oral sodomy, other unlawful sexual conduct, adultery, having inappropriate relationships with several women, fraud, disobeying orders and other misconduct.

Many of the charges are connected to an adulterous, three-year affair that Sinclair had with an Army captain under his command. She reported the affair and made the assault allegations in March 2012.

In addition to advancing jury selection, the judge, Col. James Pohl, on Tuesday said he denied several previous motions that Sinclair's defense team had pending.
