AF officer on trial Friday over alleged sex crimes
An Air Force officer and his wife are due in Guam court this week on multiple felony charges involving sex crimes against children, according to Guam Superior Court records.
The officer, a captain assigned to Andersen Air Force Base, and his wife, are scheduled for a hearing Friday. The charges against them include three first-degree felonies: criminal sexual conduct, photography of minors involving sexual acts and use of one’s child in obscene acts.
The couple also face two counts of misdemeanor child abuse.
The couple’s Yigo home was searched last week, and police found hundreds of pornographic photographs involving children, the Pacific Daily News reported.
The couple was in court Thursday and are both being held on $100,000 cash bail.
The minors involved in the case — two boys, ages 3 and 5 — are in the custody of Child Protective Services, according to the Pacific Daily News.
Stars and Stripes typically does not identify victims or alleged victims of a sexual crime. The newspaper is not identifying the couple charged in this case because it could identify possible victims.
