President Trump pardoned two service members who had been convicted of serious crimes, including First Lieutenant Clint Lorance. Lorance is the subject of the current Starz series Leavenworth. Prof. Carpenter is featured in that series. President Trump also withdrew charges for another service member who was facing murder charges.
Professor Carpenter joined FIU Law in 2013. His research interests are in military justice, sexual violence against women, and capital litigation. To read Prof. Carpenter’s works, visit his Selected Works gallery.
