MP in South Korea gets jail time for indecent assault

CAMP HENRY, South Korea A military policeman was sentenced to nine months in prison and a dishonorable discharge after being convicted of indecent assault and other charges in a general court-martial Thursday.

A five-member officer panel spent about three hours deliberating before acquitting Sgt. Carlos Salinas, 188th MP Company, of rape but finding him guilty of the lesser, indecent assault charge.

Salinas earlier had pled guilty to fraternization with another woman and guilty of two counts of adultery. He was found not guilty of a fourth charge: making false official statements.

The alleged rape victim, who reported the incident some five months after it was supposed to have occurred, testified Salinas assaulted her when she was in his barracks room. She could not recall a specific date. According to court documents, it occurred sometime between Dec. 15, 2006, and Jan. 20, 2007.

She said she was bent over Salinas computer to look at some pictures when he approached her from behind, pulled down her shorts and underwear and had sexual contact before she could stand up, pull up her clothing and leave his room.
