Air Force Times reports -- The former vice commander of the 50th Space Wing, charged with rape, assault, adultery and other lewd acts, will head to a general court-martial in August, according to the 21st Space Wing at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado.
Col. Eugene Marcus Caughey, currently assigned to Air Force Space Command at Peterson, was charged Dec.10 with rape and assault at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, after in late 2014 or early 2015 he allegedly used “unlawful force” to hold the victim “against the wall and floor” while committing a sexual act, charge sheet documents reveal. He was also charged with various acts of alleged misconduct — which includes taking photos of his genitals while in uniform — dating back to 2013, according to his charge sheet.
The general court-martial convening authority Lt. Gen. David Buck "decided to refer the case to a general court-martial," base spokesman Stephen Brady told Air Force Times on Tuesday. A motion hearing will take place before the trial, and is scheduled for June 27, Brady said.
Caughey, a 23-year Air Force veteran, allegedly committed six counts of adultery between 2013 and 2015, in violation of Article 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. One charge with two specifications in violation of Article 133 of the UCMJ, conduct unbecoming of an officer and gentleman, states that Caughey took a photo of his genitals while in uniform in his office.
Caughey has been charged with unlawfully groping women on two other occasions, according to court documents.
Caughey, formerly second in charge of the 50th Space Wing at Schriever, is a survivor of the Sept. 11 terror attack on the Pentagon, according to a Schriever release. The 50th Space Wing oversees navigation and communication satellites.
Food for thought: The Chickens are finally coming home to roost and it’s high time the Pentagon begin prosecuting all the rapists and adulterers throughout the military. These bastards have gotten away with bullying, assaulting, raping and murdering their fellow colleagues for far too long!
Honestly, I think it’s a severe mental illness and these sickos need to be behind bars, not lurking in the corridors of our military commands!!
