Three Cadets Face Sexual Assault Charges at the U.S. Air Force Academy

Last week WIAReport posted that there were 33 reported sexual assaults at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs during the 2010-11 academic year. This was up from 20 reported sexual assaults the previous year. When this data was released, the Air Force said that a majority of the sexual assault cases at the academy did not involve perpetrators who were affiliated with the school.

But now three cadets at the Air Force Academy have been charged with sexual assault offenses. One cadet is being charged with attempted rape, another for the rape of a female cadet, and a third is charged with having sex with a female cadet who was “substantially incapacitated.”

All three cases will be dealt with by a hearing officer who will recommend to the academy’s superintendent if a court martial is warranted.
