Air Force Academy Senior Faces Sexual Assault Charge

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) — An Air Force Academy senior faces a hearing on charges of sexual assault and abusive sexual contact.

The hearing for Cadet 1st Class Steven R. Fox is scheduled for Wednesday.

Through an academy spokesman, Fox and his attorneys declined to comment.

The academy says the charges related to a single incident involving a single alleged victim.

Wednesday’s session is called an Article 32 hearing and is designed to allow a hearing officer to determine whether the evidences is sufficient to warrant a trial. It’s similar to a preliminary hearing in civilian court.
