Two airmen from RAF Lakenheath, United Kingdom, were sentenced this week after they were convicted on drug charges in separate courts-martial.

Airman Aja C. Lloyd was sentenced to a bad-conduct discharge and confinement for 75 days. She had pleaded not guilty to two counts of wrongful use of controlled substances and one count of making a false statement. She was found guilty on all three counts.

Airman 1st Class Matthew Mulray pleaded guilty to wrongful use of controlled substances and was given a bad-conduct discharge, sentenced to four months’ confinement, and reduced in grade to E-1. Mulray had pleaded not guilty to wrongful distribution of controlled substances, but those charges were dropped.

This week’s convictions make a dozen airmen convicted since an investigation at RAF Lakenheath was announced in October. That investigation, which was touted as a series of investigations, involved 27 airmen, ranging in age from 19 to 30, in the 48th Fighter Wing.

Many were suspected of using, possessing or distributing controlled substances.
