A law used to convict a Midland soldier of murder and rape could allow the government to press charges against other soldiers.

Federal prosecutors say the law is Constitutional and gives the government the freedom to pursue charges against former soldiers like Steven Dale Green.

Green was found guilty of raping and killing a 14-year-old Iraqi girl while in Iraq.

He is currently challenging his conviction and maintains the law is a violation of his Constitutional rights.
