A former airman has been charged with receiving and distributing child pornography after investigators found more than 600 files of sexually explicit digital images and video in his possession, Justice and Defense Department officials told Task & Purpose.
A civilian worker was hired at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and worked there for nine months while living uncomfortably close to a base child development center, despite making a series of horrific statements regarding child rape during a job interview with another federal agency, according to an Air Force Office of Special Investigations affidavit.
Several Camp Pendleton-based Marines have been found guilty in recent weeks of crimes including rape and child pornography, with other similar cases still pending in the military criminal justice system, records show.
