An Associated Press report says an Air Force Academy cadet was allowed to stay at the school several months after he was arrested for sodomizing a woman in a wheelchair and accused of raping another cadet.

Cadet Doncosta Seawell first came to the attention of Academy investigators when he was accused of sexually assaulting another cadet 2 years ago.

A month after the 9-11 attacks, Seawell threatened to fly a glider into the cadet dining hall.

Two months late, he was arrested in Los Angeles for attacking a wheelchair-bound woman but was released from custody by the Air Force.

Seawell remained at the school 6 more months but was, then, accused of raping another cadet.

Seawell was expelled in October 2002 and was sentenced to 2 years in prison.
