PYEONGTAEK, South Korea — An Army sergeant convicted of assault and other offenses has been sentenced at Camp Humphreys to a jail term and loss of rank.
Sgt. David Antrum, 30, of the 568th Medical Company, was sentenced Wednesday to a year in jail and reduction to E-1, the military’s lowest pay grade.
Military judge Lt. Col. Mark Kulish found Antrum guilty of two counts of assault consummated by battery, housebreaking, failing to obey an order, and driving a vehicle while intoxicated.
Antrum opted to be tried by judge rather than by jury.
Prosecutors said that in June, Antrum assaulted his wife, Staff Sgt. Robinette Antrum, bruising her, and assaulted a neighbor, Tiffany Bergemann, inflicting cuts, scrapes and bruises.
The women reported the attacks to military police.
Army Col. John E. Dumoulin Jr., commander of the U.S. Army Garrison-Humphreys, suspended David Antrum’s driver’s license.
Later, said prosecutors, in violation of the suspension, Antrum was driving while drunk at Yongsan Garrison in Seoul, and MPs pulled him over.
