The deal was requested by the officer, First Lt. Daniel L. Schwartz, and agreed to by prosecutors, who consulted with Private Chen’s parents at a meeting in the city two weeks ago, officials said.

The case was the last of eight to stem from the death of Private Chen, 19, who killed himself in October 2011 while on guard duty on a military base in Afghanistan. Prosecutors contended that other soldiers had subjected him to a campaign of brutal hazing, including racial taunts and a physical attack, eventually driving him to suicide.

Wasn't this a plot point in A Few Good Men?
