York Soldier accused of desertion faces more charges

5:57am 11th November 2009

A soldier from York facing charges of desertion for refusing to return to Afghanistan has been arrested and charged with five further offences.

It's understood they're related to Lance Corporal Joe Glenton taking part in a protest in London last month against the continued presence of British troops in
Afghanistan.

The Stop the War Coalition claims the new charges carry a maximum of 10 years imprisonment.
