A former soldier was convicted on Tuesday of sexually abusing a minor while on base Fort Polk, Louisiana.
Ronald W. Allen Jr.'s abuse of the girl — who was under 12 years old when the abuse started — began in April 2012 and continued until June 2016, according to the Justice Department,
Louisiana's Beauregard Daily News reported that Allen was arrested in April 2018, and that the victim said the abuse started when she was nine years old. Prosecutors charged Allen with first degree rape, and other related charges.
He was found guilty of aggravated sexual abuse of a minor under 12 years old, and sexual abuse of a minor.
Allen faces 30 years to life behind bars for for the first offense, and 15 years for the second. He also faces no less than five years of "supervised release" along with a $250,000 fine.
It's unclear how extensive Allen's Army service was.

President Donald Trump tweeted out the logo for the brand-new U.S. Space Force on Friday, presenting it as a collaboration between "Great Military Leaders, designers and others."

The Navy is investigating dozens of videos of service members changing in a bathroom which were then shared on the website PornHub, according to a NBC News report.
According to the report, an agent from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service found the videos on PornHub earlier this month. The videos, which have since been taken down, show civilians, sailors and Marines, some of whom have visible name tapes.
