The disgraced and disgraceful soldier also received a dishonorable discharge on Tuesday, a day after being convicted of several charges stemming from the Abu Ghraib prison scandal.

England apologized, according to Reuters, and said she was a patriot: "After the photos were released, I've heard that attacks were made on U.S. armed forces because of them. I apologize to coalition forces and all the families."

England also said so-sorry to "detainees, the families, America and all the soldiers."

Her lawyers tried the pity route, asking a jury to "let her go home, send her home" for the sake of her 11-month-old baby, the bastard offspring of England and Charles Graner, a fellow Guardsman who also abused detainees. One of England's lawyers pointed out a photo of the baby, posed with an American flag.

England is 22. She will still be very young when she's released from prison. Too bad.
