An Army Reserve corporal can deploy to Afghanistan without the fear he will be arrested when returning home, the Oregon Supreme Court ruled. Derrick James McDonald, 22, had asked the state's highest court to resolve a conflict between his Army orders to deploy and his local probation requirements. In response to the emergency request, the court directed Washington County Judge Gayle Nachtigal to modify the terms of the soldier's probation, putting them on hold until he returns from what is expected to be a nine-month deployment.
