CONVICTED OF SEX CHARGES AT SCOTT AFB

SHOWS NO EMOTION AS VERDICT READ - FEMALE
PROSECUTOR WAVES "BLOW-UP" PIX OF WILLIAM
GURNEY'S GENITALS AT JURY IN FINAL REMARKS

It's all over but the sentencing. Wright-Patterson's lover boy lothario has been found guilty of two charges of sexually pursuing female airmen and abusing his position as chief master sergeant at the Air Force Material Command.
William Gurney showed no emotion in the courtroom at Scott AFB Illinois, where the proceedings took place, as the verdict was read.
The 27-year Air Force veteran could get up to 16 years in prison, a dishonorable discharge, loss of military pay and pension, and a bust in rank to airman basic when he's sentenced Friday. That's a long fall for an E-9 who was a USAF "fair-haired boy" for much of his story-book career.
While Gurney is undoubtedly a horn dog, and deserves some sort of discipline for his sexual misadventures, sources tell us here at MilitaryCorruption.com at least two of the female "victims" are not exactly "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.
"VICTIM" SENDS GURNEY PIX OF HER BREASTS
"One of them, according to testimony, sent Gurney a pix of her breasts, after she was supposedly horrified and offended by the top sergeant's romantic moves," the source said. "Another one was more than happy to have sex with the handsome, athletically-built Gurney, until the OSI started sniffing around. Then, she got out the handkerchief and start to complain about how abused she had been."
The chief prosecutor's final statement was almost comic in nature. Snorting with outrage, Maj. Patricia Gruen waved a blow-up pix of Gurney's prodigious genitals in front of the six-officer jury. The top-ranking NCO had sent copies of his anatomical abundance to various female subordinates, hoping to "arouse," pardon the pun, some interest. It did.
This case took on added titillation when it was revealed that on one occasion Gurney participated in a three-way sexual romp with both his attractive wife Tracie and one of his innocent "victims."
Too bad the OSI couldn't show as much interest in the waste of millions of dollars spent looking for nonexistent kidnappers in Kyrgyzstan. But we all know the "special circumstances" of that scandal. It's not what the crime is, but who does it that counts. And in the Air Force, "equal justice under the law," like "core values," is indeed a hollow phrase.
