Fort Sill Soldier Sentenced For Child Rape

Posted: Updated:

Lawton, Ok_A military jury has recommended a Fort Sill soldier serve four years in confinement for raping a girl under the age of 12.

1st Lt. Michael A. Chambers was found guilty, last week, of child rape and aggravated sexual contact with a child.  The abuse occurred between May 2008 and November 2009. Chambers was found not guilty on three other charges.

Chambers was assigned to Headquarters Battery, 2nd Battalion, 4th Field Artillery Regiment and has been stationed at Fort Sill since February 2009.

In addition to four years in confinement, a jury panel of five officers recommended that Chambers forfeit all pay and allowances and be dismissed from the Army.

Fort Sill Commanding General, Maj. Gen. Mark McDonald must now approve the sentence.

Chambers is the fourth Fort Sill soldier to be convicted of sexual misconduct with a child in less than one year.
