Sex Scandal Shakes Air Force Branch
Staff Sergeant Luis Walker is accused of assaulting ten trainees, with charges ranging from improper professional conduct to rape, reports the SF Gate.
Walkers ‘case has been called “cornerstone” to the accusations against six to twelve other instructors with Walker facing the most charges.
If Walker is found guilty, he could face a lifelong prison sentence.
The scandal involves thirty one women to date and the Air Force has brought in a two star general to begin inquiries into the charges brought against the twelve instructors.
“He is a wolf in sheep’s clothing,” prosecutor, Major Patricia Gruen told the seven-person jury comprised of military personnel.
Closing arguments are set to begin Friday in the case of the largest military sex scandal to date.
