Hearing set for Air Force cadet on rape charge

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - A hearing to determine whether the last of three Air Force Academy cadets charged with sexual misconduct will be court-martialed is scheduled to begin Monday.

An Article 32 hearing, which is equivalent to a civilian grand jury proceeding, had been scheduled earlier for Robert M. Evenson Jr. at Peterson Air Force Base, but it was postponed.

Evenson is charged with rape. The academy announced the charge in January along with sexual misconduct charges against two other cadets stemming from unrelated incidents between February 2010 and May 2011.

No decisions have been made on whether those cadets will be court-martialed.
