Military expands probe in air force sex scandal

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Military prosecutors are investigating whether additional charges should be filed against a staff sergeant implicated in a widespread sex scandal after 1 of the victims testified she was retaliated against for reporting the unwanted advances.

The San Antonio Express-News reported Saturday that investigating officer Maj. Jeffrey Biller may charge Staff Sgt. Donald Davis with obstruction of justice and maltreatment. Davis has already been charged with sexually abusive contact with a recruit in his unit and having sex with a technical school trainee.

The sex scandal has rocked Lackland Air Force Base, which graduates more than 36,000 airmen annually. Investigators say in the past year 40 women at Lackland had inappropriate contact with instructors or were sexually harassed or raped. Five instructors have been convicted. Nearly 12 others are under investigation.
