Pilot's Wife Wants Governor's Help

By  | 

Lisa Schmidt said Monday she has asked to meet with the governor.

Her husband, Major Harry Schmidt, faces a court-martial for a friendly fire bombing that killed four Canadians in Afghanistan in April 2002.

Lisa Schmidt says she wants Blagojevich to call the Secretary of Defense and ask him to drop the charges.

Harry Schmidt is to be tried on a charge of dereliction of duty. He faces up to six months in prison if convicted in a court-martial.
