FORT KNOX, Ky. Military prosecutors have dismissed charges of larceny and selling military property for the sale of body armor against a Fort Knox soldier.

The charges against Staff Sgt. Hunter Perry were dismissed on Wednesday, according to a memorandum signed by the Army installation's commanding general Maj. Gen. Jefforey Smith, the same day that Perry's court-martial was scheduled to begin.

Perry has said that he legally bought and sold the ballistic plates online for a profit and said nothing he sold online was ever taken from any Army inventory or issued to him. He said they had no markings to indicate they were military property.

The charges were raised on May 10 and were referred for trial on Aug. 17.
