SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. (AP) - An Air Force enlisted man assigned to an elite military unit has been found guilty of sexual assault in a court-martial at Scott Air Force Base.

The Belleville News-Democrat (bit.ly/24333el ) reports that Senior Airman John D. Gonzalez was sentenced to six years confinement and given a bad-conduct discharge after a four-day jury trial last week.

Gonzalez was assigned to the 19th Air Support Operations Squadron at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. He was initially arrested in 2013 by police in Nashville, Tennessee. The 19th Air Support Operations Squadron is also known as the Blue Lightning.
