The Air Force Academy says another male cadet has been charged with aggravated sexual assault.

The school announced the charge Thursday but didn't identify the cadet or release any other details. A school spokesman didn't immediately return a call seeking more information.

At least six cadets, all males, have been charged with sexual misconduct in the past 13 months. Charges against one were dismissed and one was convicted. A third was in a hearing Thursday to determine whether he should face a court-martial.

The status of two others was not immediately known.

The next step in the latest case will be a hearing for an investigating officer to decide whether to recommend the cadet face a court-martial. The hearing hasn't been scheduled.
