Former Fort Campbell officer cleared of charge

Former Fort Campbell officer cleared of charge

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The former head of the sex harassment program at Fort Campbell has been cleared of charges stemming from a domestic dispute.

But Lt. Col. Darin Haas, who was immediately removed from the position after his arrest, told The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/1dCCqQB) that the situation damaged his reputation and his career.

Hass was charged in May with violating a protective order and stalking after his ex-wife filed a complaint against him.

Haas’ attorney, Stacy Turner, said authorities voluntarily dismissed the charges after a meeting revealed details of a contentious divorce. The judge issued an order to dismiss the charges on Wednesday.

Haas says he will have to fight to restore his good name.

His retirement from the Army is expected to become final in December.
