Capt. James Yee will be allowed to return his previous duty station at Fort Lewis, near Tacoma, Washington., said Maj. Gen. Geoffrey D. Miller, commander of Joint Task Force Guantanamo.
The Army charged Yee last September with mishandling classified material, failing to obey an order, making a false official statement, adultery and conduct unbecoming an officer for allegedly downloading pornography on his government laptop.
His lawyer said last week that a proposed settlement was in the works.
Miller said Yee will be offered nonjudicial punishment for allegations of adultery and pornography.
Yee, a 1990 West Point graduate who left the military for four years to study Arabic and Islam in Syria, returned as a chaplain and counseled some of the prison's 660 detainees from more than 40 countries.
