The Air Force Academy is investigating a sexual assault charge against a non-cadet airman.

Airman First Class Justin Burback has been accused of sexually assaulting a female enlisted airman, the academy said in a release Thursday. The same day, the academy held an Article 32 hearing — the equivalent of a civilian grand jury proceeding — to investigate the sexual misconduct accusation.

The presiding investigating officer will next submit recommendations to the 10th Air Base Wing Commander Col. Stacey Hawkins on how to proceed. Hawkins will then decide whether to dismiss the case, recommend a general court-martial, or take other disciplinary or administrative action.
