The Air Force's decision to transfer a lieutenant colonel to a Tucson military base after his sexual assault conviction was overturned by a commander has outraged the family of the woman who made the allegations, adding to the growing criticism of the military justice system.
The House Armed Services Committee is scheduled Wednesday to open Congress' first open hearing into a massive sex abuse scandal at Lackland Air Force Base near San Antonio.
Commanders who have broad authority in letting cases go forward face a conflict of interest, Ms. Parrish said.
"They are incentivized to sweep these cases under the rug. A commander's career is on the chopping block if a rape happens under his or her watch," said Ms. Parrish, whose group is pressing the Defense Department on behalf of Col. Wilkerson's accuser.
