An Air Force Academy cadet accused of sexual assault will face a court-martial Monday, the military equivalent of a trial.
Cadet 2nd Class Stephan H. Claxton is accused of allegedly assaulting a fellow cadet.
A woman testified at a hearing in January that Claxton, who is in the class of 2012, allegedly crept beside her while she slept in March 2011 and placed her hand on his genitals. Prosecutors allege he also unzipped the pants of a woman who was passed out after a night of drinking in November.
Claxton was among three Air Force Academy cadets charged this year in separate sex assault cases.
All three were alleged to be in violation of Article 120, which as of 2007 constitutes rape, sexual assault, and other sexual misconduct. According to the Air Force, all charges were later dropped against one of the accused, Cadet Kyle A. Cressy.
If convicted, Claxton stands to be dismissed from the military, and could be sent to a military prison.
Claxton faces the following charges:
-An attempt to engage in misconduct that would be in violation of Article 120, abusive sexual contact
-Wrongful sexual contact (three specifications)
-Assault (four specifications)
