The "bad boy" lieutenant that headed up the Osan "town patrol" and was convicted on a number of charges last month will not be allowed to "resign (RILO) in lieu of" punishment, officials say.
Instead, Lt. Jason Davis will remain confined in the Camp Humphreys lock-up until 7th Air Force commander Lt. Gen. Gary R. Trexler, convening authority in the case, decides whether or not to reduce Davis' already light two year sentence.
Veteran observers of corruption at USFK in Korea are watching closely to see if the Air Force continues to give Davis a "slap-on-the-wrist" in view of the very serious charges that were originally lodged against him.
Prior to his September court-martial, Davis - known back in South Carolina as the "Shame of the Citadel" (he is a graduate) - was tagged with charges of rape, assault, bribery, extortion, weapons offenses, adultery and everything else but the kitchen sink.
As we predicted here on MilitaryCorruption.com before the trial, the top brass couldn't afford to punish Davis too severely, with what he allegedly knew about corruption all up and down the chain-of-command. Some cynics felt that some of the bribe money was shared with ranking officers and Davis obtained a light sentence for keeping his mouth shut.
We can only hope Gen. Trexler will let the paltry two year sentence stand and not reduce it to "time served" so Davis can quietly slide out of the public spotlight while the USFK Command escapes any scrutiny.
