(KMOV) -- The highest ranking military officer to ever face sexual assault charges has accepted a plea deal.

Prosecutors agreed to drop the sexual assault and sodomy charges against Brigadier General Jeffrey Sinclar. Sinclair pleaded guilty to adultery and mistreating his accuser.

A female captain claimed Sinclair sexually assaulted her while she was under his command.

Senator Claire McCaskill pushed for reform to stop military sexual assaults.
