Air Force Academy cadet facing sexual assault charges

U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. — An Article 32 hearing will be held Wednesday for an Air Force Academy cadet accused of sexual assault.

Cadet Third Class Jackson Spalding is facing three specifications of sexual assault and abusive sexual conduct, and one specification of conduct unbecoming an officer and gentleman. All of the charges stem from one incident against one victim at the Academy on March 6, 2015.

An Article 32 hearing is similar to a civilian grand jury proceeding.
