SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Records show elite trainers at a Texas air force base rocked by a widespread sex scandal have dabbled in drugs, been busted for drunk driving and been accused of assault and abusing trainees in the past decade.
The offenses were disclosed Sunday in response to a Freedom of Information request by the San Antonio Express-News.
The newspaper reports the offenses show a pattern of misconduct since 2002 at the training facility that graduates more than 36,000 airmen annually.
The Express-News reports the Air Force documented 81 nonsexual cases in the past decade. Most were handled secretly. Many resulted in reprimands, loss of rank and loss of pay. Some commanders suspended punishment.
Nearly three dozen other cases involved sexual relationships, most consensual. Instructors are barred from having sexual relationships with students.
