A master sergeant at Grand Forks Air Force Base is facing a court-martial later this month for charges she was negligent in her duties.

The attorney for Master Sgt. Lisa Mashburn says she will be cleared of the charge.

Base spokesman Master Sargent Joseph Kapinos says Mashburn is the sergeant in charge of an operations center where an airman committed suicide in early August.

The charge against Mashburn is the military equivalent of a misdemeanor.

It has a maximum penalty of a reduction in rank, forfeiture of two-thirds pay for three months, and three months confinement.
