Navy Seal found not guilty on almost all chargesA Navy SEAL was found not guilty on Tuesday of premeditated murder after being charged with killing a teenage Islamic State prisoner in Iraq.

Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher was accused of stabbing a teenage prisoner in the neck and body. He went on to pose with the prisoner's body and included it as a prop in his re-enlistment ceremony, and bragged that he "got this one with my knife." In addition, he was also accused of shooting two civilians.

Gallagher was found guilty on one of seven charges: posing for a photo with a human casualty. According to CNN, Gallagher faces a maximum sentence of four months. However, he has already served 201 days.
