Md. (AP) ? A military jury on Wednesday afternoon found an Army doctor who disobeyed orders to deploy to Afghanistan because he questions President Obama's eligibility for office guilty of missing a flight that would have gotten him to his eventual deployment.

The jury returned the verdict against Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin of Greeley, Colo., on the charge of "missing movement" by design. It carries a possible two-year sentence.

Lakin previously pleaded guilty to another charge against him. All told, he now faces a possible 42 months in prison. A military jury will sentence him after a sentencing phase.
