An Air Force Academy Cadet accused of rape will face court martial June 7th.

Despite lawyers' claims senior Air Force officers wanted to make an example of Cadet Douglas Meester, a judge ruled Friday officers did not illegally influence the case.

Meester is accused of having sex with a freshman Cadet in 2002 who claims she passed out in his dorm room after a night of drinking.

The Academy's Commandant of Cadets overturned a legal officer's recommendation to dismiss the case.
