An Airman was found guilty of sexual assault and sexual abusive contact during a General Court Martial April 28, 2022, resulting in a 42-month imprisonment.

The investigation was initiated by the Office of Special Investigations Detachment 303, Feb. 18, 2020, following information given to OSI from the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office (SAPRO), 60th Air Mobility Wing at Travis.

According to the survivor, the Airman sexually assaulted her during the early morning hours of Feb. 17 2020, in her dormitory room. A review from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigations Laboratory subsequently identified the Airman’s DNA.

Before that assault, the perpetrator also forced himself on a second individual, however, she managed to push him away, she told investigators.

A third survivor told Special Agents she was subjected to similar acts by the Airman twice in Nov. 2018.

The Airman was sentenced to 42 months confinement; reduced in rank to airman basic with a forfeiture of $2054; and was dishonorably discharged from the Air Force.

"OSI has a long history of finding the truth and bringing those truths to trial,” said Special Agent Lindsey B. Tenney, Det. 303 commander. “The Special Agents of Det. 303 and their unwavering efforts lived up to that standard in bringing justice to this case.”
