An Air Force Art. 32 hearing is deciding the fate of a cadet charged with rape on USAFA gorunds. The Colorado Springs Gazette reports, here:
Thomas, Colangelo, Claxton and several other cadets were drinking and partying in Colorado Springs when Thomas said he noticed a woman, a former cadet, was extremely drunk.
None of the cadets knew where she lived, so they brought her back to the dorms, Thomas said. After placing her on a bed, Thomas said he and other cadets left the room.
A few minutes later, Colangelo said he asked Thomas why the door was locked.
Colangelo testified to Lt. Col. Rhonda Bershok — who presided over the hearing — that he and Cadet David Burns banged on the door.
Colangelo said when Claxton opened the door, he and his friends found the woman with her pants unzipped and her shirt pulled up.
Moments later, Claxton punched Burns in the face, yelling “I’m not a rapist. I’m not a rapist,” Thomas said.
The cadets reported the incident to their superiors that night.
