FEMALE MTI PLEADS GUILTY TO ABUSING
She was the MTI (military training instructor) from hell, and now she's going to get a dose of her own medicine.
SSGT Anna Marie Ellis has been sentenced by a military judge at Joint Base Lackland, San Antonio to eight months incarceration, busted down to the rank of E-1, and given a bad conduct discharge.
The super aggressive female non-com saved herself a longer stretch behind bars when she admitted that during a two year period (2009 - 2011) she abused recruits under her command, threatened them with violence, and lied to cover-up her misconduct.
We may never know why Ellis was so sadistic. Is she a man-hating bull dyke or a dangerous psychotic? She didn't elaborate on her training methods, but they were off-the-wall, to say the least.
THREATENED TO CASTRATE A MALE RECRUIT
The former MTI forced recruits to do physical training in the nude, denied them food and water as well as bathroom breaks, threatened to "cut off" a male's genitals, and challenged others to a fistfight.
She also lied about how one recruit got a black eye and urged others to lie to investigators as well. SSGT Ellis was clearly out-of-control.
That she was able to get away with her crimes over a two year span, while male MTI's were being court-martialed and shipped off to prison, makes one wonder how she got away with it for so long.
Ellis pleaded guilty to making recruits "bark like a dog" and threatened to send some of them home "in a body bag." In all, she admitted 24 specifications of cruelty and maltreatment of trainees, dereliction of duty, and obstruction of justice.
The Air Force is certainly better off without this creature.
