High Fire Danger Wednesday

Cadet Misconduct


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.
