SAN ANTONIO — A woman testified that an Air Force recruiter for the Houston area sent her lewd text messages and images of himself nude as he tried to coax her into a sexual relationship.
The http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/military/article/Air-Force-recruiter-pursued-girl-for-sex-4174226.php">San Antonio Express-News reports the woman, who's now in the Navy, testified at an Article 32 hearing for Tech. Sgt. Jaime Rodriguez. The equivalent of a civilian grand jury proceeding will determine if he's court-martialed on allegations of sexual misconduct, rape and obstructing justice.
Officials say they began investigating Rodriguez after the woman's mother found the text messages and images and reported him. Air Force Special Agent Mark Ryan says 18 women were found who said he tried to initiate sexual relationships with them.
The hearing was at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.
