About MAT's CASE

Mathew Golsteyn, a Major from the 3rd Special Forces Group in Fort Bragg, NC, was charged with premeditated murder by the Headquarters and Headquarters Company Commander LTC Todd Sunday on 12DEC18.  The series of events leading to the preferral of charges began when Major Golsteyn was deployed to Afghanistan in January of 2010 and returned from that deployment to seek employment within the Ground Branch of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).  He is represented by his attorney Phillip Stackhouse who first joined the case in December of 2011.
