Two airmen were convicted of sexual assault and a third of sexual harassment at courts-martial in February, the Air Force said. All three received discharges as part of their sentences.

The Air Force began publishing a monthly list of convictions in September. Since then, 27 airmen have been found guilty of sexual assault or related offenses.

Airmen convicted in February:

■ Airman 1st Class Jarrid Gable of Minot Air Force Base, N.D., sentenced Feb. 2 to six months confinement, three months hard labor, reduction to E-1 and a bad conduct discharge for sexually assaulting two women, including a fellow airman.

The crimes occurred in December 2012 and January 2013, according to the Air Force.

■ Senior Airman Adrian Palma of Robins Air Force Base, Ga., sentenced Feb. 16 to five years confinement, reduction to E-1 and a dishonorable discharge for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman after a night of drinking.

■ Staff Sgt. Thomas Walthour of Columbus Air Force Base, Miss., sentenced Feb. 27 to two months confinement, reduction to E-1 and a bad conduct discharge for sexual harassment, assault consummated by a battery and adultery.

Walthour physically assaulted two people, including a male and female airman, and made sexually offensive comments to the female airman after dinner and drinks while the group was headed for a deployment, the Air Force said. Walthour had sex with a third airman. He was cleared of aggravated sexual contact and two specifications of obstruction of justice, the Air Force said.
