Air Force Academy Seeks To Prosecute Cadet in Rape
By Diana Jean Schemo | New York Times

The military has filed a rape charge against an Air Force Academy cadet, the first such charge since a sex scandal broke at the academy earlier this year. The charge was filed Tuesday against Douglas Meester, a sophomore accused of raping and sodomizing a female cadet in a dorm room on Oct. 18. He also is charged with indecent assault and providing alcohol.

Capt. Kathleen Reder, Meester’s military attorney, said she did not know if he would testify. “We’ll make that decision after the government’s evidence,” she said.

The sex probe took another twist earlier this month when it was learned that a senior cadet had been accused of organizing a Web site that promoted group sex, sending e-mails to hundreds of people, and organizing and participating in sex sessions involving as many as two dozen men and one woman in nearby Colorado Springs and Denver.

Cadet Jason Lewis has been charged with sexual assault for allegedly forcing a female cadet to fondle him in his dorm room. Air Force officials held a hearing last week but have not announced whether Lewis will face a court-martial.

Since the scandal here first broke in late January, some 57 current and past cadets have complained to Senator Wayne Allard, Republican of Colorado, whose office has become a sort of national clearinghouse for accusations of abuse at the Air Force Academy. Many complained that the academy had punished them, and not their accused assailants, after they reported assaults.

Cadet’s court-martial ends with reprimand, fine
Published June 08, 2004

U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AFPN) — The general court-martial of Cadet 3rd Class Douglas Meester ended June 8 with a guilty plea to three charges, and a sentence of a reprimand and fine of $2,000.

Original charges were preferred against Cadet Meester on May 13, 2003, for violations of the Uniformed Code of Military Justice. The original charges were rape, forcible sodomy, conduct unbecoming an officer and indecent assault. If convicted, Cadet Meester faced a maximum punishment of confinement for life, dismissal from the Air Force and forfeiture of all pay and allowances.

As the result of a pretrial agreement finalized June 7, the original charges against Cadet Meester were dismissed, in return for a guilty plea on three charges. The new charges which the cadet pleaded guilty to were dereliction of duty, conduct unbecoming an officer and indecent acts.

“Our goal was to see that justice was served for both the victim and the accused, and our military justice system worked. We are satisfied with the judge’s ruling,” said Maj. Erica Austin, academy legal spokeswoman.

Following his guilty plea and sentencing, Cadet Meester remains a cadet at the academy.
