Court-martial proceedings have recently been delayed by a military judge for a 27-year old Air Force chief master sergeant man accused of sexually harassing 10 of the women working for him via touching them inappropriately and sending very racy text messages. The chief master sergeant’s lawyers requested the delay according to reports.
The women in the case claim the man was continuously sexually inappropriate throughout their time with him. He allegedly sent sexually explicit text messages and photos and regularly flirted and touched the girls inappropriately without permission. The women claim he used his position of power to take advantage of them and scare them into saying nothing about it.
The man faces “18 counts of engaging in sexual misconduct and sex crimes like unprofessional relationships involving 10 enlisted women, with the alleged indiscretions including wrongful sexual contact, adultery, mistreatment of subordinates and dereliction of duty by misuse of his position.”
The Air Force said no new trial has been set since the postponement but will be very soon. “The Air Force takes all allegations of misconduct seriously and holds its people to the highest standards,” the Air Force said in a statement. “It presumes the innocence of the accused until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.”
The defendant had apparently transferred to this base back in 2008 where he became command chief of the Air Logistics Center. None of the plaintiffs in the case were available for comment, stated Manhattan Injury Attorneys.
