Lesbian sailor fights charges
A lesbian sailor at the Great Lakes Naval Base says she’s being targeted because of her sexual orientation.
Chief Petty Officer Sabrina Russell and Petty Officer First Class Jodi Geibel were joined in a legal civil union last year.
According to the Navy, Russell violated the Uniform Code of Military Justice when she became involved with a junior officer.
Russell’s lawyer claims the couple is being targeted by other enlisted sailors who blamed them for reporting unrelated claims of sexual harassment.
