Captain Christian Pappas was a Marine military justice prosecutor who lead the prosecution of the Marine Corps Recruit Depot Drill Instructor Abuse cases in 2007 including Sergeant Jerrod Glass. Pappas argued in front of the jury that Glass had struck recruits with flashlights and tent poles, choked a recruit, made recruits drink water until they vomited and repeatedly referred to a Latino recruit with a homophobic slur in Spanish.

Only when Glass repeatedly hit a crying recruit over the head with a flashlight did another recruit report the abuse to a senior drill instructor, Pappas said. Glass was taken off duty and an investigation was launched, ultimately resulting in his conviction. He was sentence to six months cofinement, reduction in rank to private, and a bad conduct discharge.
