Yet another court martial for an Air Force Academy Cadet who's been charged of rape.

Cadet First Class Benjamin Kuster has been accused of raping a female Cadet during a diving club field trip to New Mexico last year.

At a preliminary hearing, witnesses said Kuster and his girlfriend, Katherine "Kat" Ivey, entered a room where other cadets were sleeping. They had sex before going to sleep next to the alleged victim.

That woman says she woke up next morning to find Kuster sexually assaulting her.

Kuster admits he had been drinking heavily and may have mistaken the victim for his girlfriend.
