FORT MEADE, Md — The court martial of an Army doctor who disobeyed orders to deploy to Afghanistan because he questioned President Barack Obama's eligibility for office will continue for a second day in a military court in Maryland.

On Tuesday, Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin of Greeley, Colo., pleaded guilty to one of two charges against him. The charge included disobeying an order to meet with a superior and disobeying an order to report to Fort Campbell in Kentucky. Lakin faces up to 18 months in prison and dismissal from the Army when he's sentenced on that charge.

A military jury will decide Lakin's eventual sentence, but Lakin won't be able to raise the topic he wanted to as part of his original defense: whether Obama was born in the U.S. and therefore can serve as commander in chief.
