"I TOLD HIM NO," FEMALE AIRMAN SOBS AT
TEXAS COURT-MARTIAL - ALLEGED VICTIM
CLAIMS STAFF SGT LUIS WALKER RAPED
HER ON BED IN HIS OFFICE - NCO "T.I." FACES
LIFE IN PRISON IF CONVICTED - SEX CHARGES
ROCK JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND
The first of what prosecutors promise will be four female trainees, allegedly raped by an Air Force instructor, took the witness stand Tuesday to describe her ordeal at the hands of her accused attacker.
"I told him no," sobbed the young woman, as she testified she was forced to have sex with Staff Sgt. Luis Walker, her "T. I." at Lackland AFB in Texas.
The witness wiped away tears as she said the NCO told her, after the sex act was over: "Don't tell anyone."
"I won't," the alleged victim replied, according to her court testimony.
Defense attorneys tried to rip a hole in her credibility by asking why she didn't file a complaint right away after the sexual "attack."
"I didn't feel like talking about it then," she said.
WALKER ONE OF 12 TRAINING INSTRUCTORS ACCUSED
Air Force prosecutor Maj. Patricia Gruen denounced the defendant as a "wolf in sheep's clothing" and accused him of being a "predator" who seduced young females into giving him sex.
Walker, is just one of a dozen USAF training instructors caught up in a sex scandal that has rocked this huge military installation at San Antonio.
If convicted on all 28 counts he faces, including rape, Walker could get life in prison.
Prosecutors say the sergeant followed the same pattern, first kissing and groping the women, before forcing them to have intercourse.
MilitaryCorruption.com has been unable to find out as of press time if Walker plans to take the stand himself and testify in his own defense.
