Prison scandal soldier had a poor record, say colleagues

Half a dozen friends and colleagues of Pfc. Lynndie England, a central figure in the Iraqi prisoner-abuse scandal, painted an unflattering picture of the young soldier Wednesday at a military hearing, describing lax work habits, unexplained late-night absences and nude pictures taken during a Virginia Beach vacation. Spc. Matthew Bollinger, who was Englands supervisor during the six months she worked as a clerk at Iraqs Abu Ghraib prison, told the hearing he reprimanded her on numerous occasions for failing to obey orders and for visiting the concrete two-story building where her boyfriend, Cpl. Charles Graner, worked the night shift.
