Master Sergeant At Lackland Charged with Rape
Posted Thursday, February 20th 2014 @ 12pm  by Jim Forsyth

  A Master Sergeant...a senior NCO...at Lackland Air Force Base has been charged with rape in connection with an incident that allegedly happened 19 years ago, 1200 WOAI news reports.

 

  Master Sergeant Michael Silva is charged with raping a female cadet when he was a Military Training Instructor at Lackland in 1995.

 

  The charges were filed against Silva three weeks ago, and he will face his Article 32 hearing, the military equivalent of a court martial, on Monday.

 

  The Air Force has been actively encouraging individuals who were basic trainees at Lackland to come forward as the military deals with the sex with recruit scandal which rocked Lackland two years ago.  The Air Education and Training Command has set up special hot line numbers, and has encouraged previous trainees to report abuse.
