FORT BRAGG, N.C. – Before entering court Thursday morning, the defense team for a Fort Bragg general facing court-martial over sex assault lashed out again at the Army, saying their description of Brigadier General Jeffrey Sinclair's pornography collection is way off, according to WTVD.

"All of this is far less than what the government has characterized this as," said Marcus Lawson, a computer forensics expert.

Lawson is the CEO of Washington-based Global CompuSearch, LLC.

The firm specializes in legal consulting with computer and digital evidence in criminal evidence.

Lawson will testify for the defense, which won a small battle on Wednesday, when the judge ruled prosecutors could not use hundreds of porn images and videos in their opening statements.

The Army maintains that in 2009, Sinclair possessed and viewed 8,500 pornographic images and 600 videos.

The said the collection would prove his intent and motive to later commit the alleged sex assault against a female captain under his command.
