An investigation led by Office of Special Investigations Detachment 204 resulted in a Department of the Air Force NCO pleading guilty to a litany of criminal offenses in a general court-martial here, Feb. 2, 2022.

The staff sergeant pleaded guilty and was convicted of violating Article 117a, Broadcast, distribution of intimate images of another; Article 127, Extortion; and Article 128, Assault consummated by a battery.

The offender, assigned to Offutt AFB, was sentenced to a dishonorable discharge, 40 months confinement, and reduced in rank to airman basic.

“The statements from the victims solidified the case, and were made possible by the diligent care our agents paid to the victims throughout the investigative process,” said Office of Special Investigations Detachment 204 Commander, Special Agent Brittany Swift. “The courage it takes for victims to speak up is not lost on those who investigate crimes. We are grateful for their willingness to help us find the truth.”

When interviewed by Det. 204 Special Agents the subject admitted to receiving intimate visual images from many of the victims and broadcasting them without their consent. The subject also extorted visual images from these victims under a masked identity. The subject denied sexually assaulting or touching anyone sexually without their consent.
