The court-martial of the former command chief of the 12th Air Force, or Air Forces Southern, began on Tuesday.

Chief Master Sergeant Jose Barraza, who was removed from his position at Davis-Monthan Air Base in Arizona last November, is charged with one specification of willfully disobeying an order, seven specifications of dereliction of duty, two specifications of making false official statements, two specifications of indecent recording and five specifications of obstruction of justice. The court-martial began at Davis-Mothan Tuesday and is expected to run throughout the week.

Barraza allegedly recorded images and video of a woman’s “private area” without her consent, according to the charge sheet, and later deleted those images from his cell phone to conceal evidence of an unprofessional, sexual relationship between the two.

Barraza is also accused of pushing her to delete text messages from her own cell phone, in an alleged attempt to conceal their sexual relationship from investigators.

The charge sheet also said Barraza inaccurately told Office of Special Investigations agents that his relationship with her was professional, and said he would not pursue a sexual relationship with someone in AFSOUTH.

Barraza is charged with one specification of willfully disobeying an order, seven specifications of dereliction of duty, two specifications of making false official statements, two specifications of indecent recording and five specifications of obstruction of justice, according to his charge sheet.

Barraza was featured in a January 2014 Airman Magazine story, called “Playing the Pawn,” which told how he started as a gang member in Los Angels and grew to become the top enlisted advisor to AFSOUTH in 2015.
