For the first time ever, a United States Air Force General has been found guilty of sexual misconduct.
Air Force Major General William Cooley has been convicted on sexual misconduct charges that stem from a 2018 incident.
The woman… his brother’s wife.
According to the report, Cooley was given a ride home after a BBQ in New Mexico.
He got a bit frisky with his sister-in-law, “forcing his tongue in her mouth, forcing her hand to his genitals, and pushing his hand between her legs, and cupping her breast.”
While Cooley was acquitted on the more serious charges, he was found guilty of forcing his tongue in her mouth.
What lies next for Cooley is uncertain.
He could lose his rank, pay, and benefits in a worst-case scenario.
Additionally, he also faces up to seven years in prison.
In this day and age of a very woke Secretary of Defense, it would not be surprising to hear that Austin made a phone call demanding the judge in the case throw the book at him.
Sources, however, have stated that loss of rank is probably not going to happen.
