The last of four Marines charged in an alleged kidnapping and gang rape was convicted Wednesday at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, base officials said.

Sgt. Lanaeus Braswell, 25, was convicted by court-martial of committing indecent acts with a woman, sodomy, fraternization, and violating liberty and alcohol policies, base spokesman Master Gunnery Sgt. John Cordero said.

Braswell was reduced in rank to private and will receive a bad-conduct discharge, Cordero said.

None of the four Marines charged in the case was convicted of kidnapping or rape.

Braswell and the three other Marines had sex with a Japanese woman in a Hiroshima parking lot during a night of partying in October, according to court records.

The woman, a 19-year-old minor at the time, claimed in her sworn testimony the four men kidnapped and raped her.

Each of the Marines made plea agreements and admitted to breaking various military rules barring the social mixing of superiors and subordinates, sexual acts in front of others and unauthorized leave from base.

Lance Cpl. Larry Dean, 20, was sentenced May 9 to no more than one year in prison and a dishonorable discharge for drinking alcohol underage, fraternization, breaking liberty policy and wrongful sexual contact.

Gunnery Sgt. Jarvis Raynor, 34, pleaded guilty May 20 to adultery, indecent acts, fraternization, stealing money and breaking liberty rules. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison and will receive a bad-conduct discharge.

Gunnery Sgt. Carl M. Anderson, 39, was convicted of committing indecent acts, dereliction of duty, fraternization, conspiracy and adultery, and was sentenced June 10 to 15 months of confinement and a bad-conduct discharge, according to the public affairs office.
