SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A court-martial is set to open in the case against a Texas Air Force basic training instructor accused in a sex scandal surrounding instructors at a San Antonio air base.
The trial of Master Sgt. Jamey Crawford is scheduled to begin Wednesday afternoon at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio. He's accused of wrongfully conducting a sexual relationship with a basic trainee, wrongfully serving alcohol to the trainee, adultery with the trainee and making a false official statement.
