Airman assigned to AF Academy facing sex charges
A male airman who works at the Air Force Academy is facing charges of aggravated sexual contact and abusive sexual contact against a female enlisted airman.
The academy said Friday that a squadron commander brought the charges Thursday. The airmen's names weren't released. Lawyers are working to schedule an Article 32 hearing, which is equivalent to a civilian grand jury proceeding.
Following the hearing, the 10th Air Base Wing commander could dismiss the case, recommend it go to a general court-martial, or choose other disciplinary or administrative action.
