Air Force O-4 Acquitted of Sexual Offense Charges

Air Force O-4 was charged with Indecent Acts with a Child, Conduct Unbecoming an Officer by engaging in sexual advances toward female subordinates, a variety of assaults and battery on junior enlisted personnel, and drunk and disorderly conduct. He pled guilty to Assault on a Child under Sixteen, several of the Assaults, and Conduct Prejudicial to Good Order and Discipline. He was only convicted of one assault to which he did not plead guilty. He was acquitted of all sexual offenses, thus avoiding sexual offender registration. In sentencing, the Government argued for Dismissal from the service and three years confinement. Our client was sentenced to only 45 days of confinement and forfeitures, and NO DISMISSAL.
