A criminal investigation led by Office of Special Investigations Detachment 518 resulted in an Airman being sentenced for a myriad of sexual offenses during a court-martial Feb. 9, 2022.

The Airman was convicted of one specification of sexual assault and two specifications of abusive sexual contact, all in violation of Article 120, Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), against three separate victims.

The offender, assigned to Spangdahlem Air Base, was sentenced to 34 months confinement, reduced in grade to E-1, given a dishonorable discharge and a reprimand.

What started out as a single-victim case resulted in a court-martial conviction for three sex offenses against three separate victims due to the thorough investigation conducted by OSI Detachment 518 Special Agents.

“Our OSI agents synced with our 52nd Fighter Wing Office of the Staff Judge Advocate (52FW/JA) teammates early and often throughout this investigation to ensure our prosecutors had the evidence they needed” said Special Agent Junelene Bungay, OSI Det. 518 commander. “OSI and our Special Agents at Det 518 will continue to pursue the truth, allowing survivors involved in sexual assault investigations to see that justice is served.”  

Using evidence gathered by OSI, the 52FW/JA prosecuted the case. The general court-martial lasted ten days, involved over 38 trial personnel and witnesses, and resulted in a just outcome.
