New info in AF Lt. Col.'s sex assault case

Accused Fairfield H.S. grad was formerly the chief of the Sexual Abuse Prevention & Assault Office


Lt. Col. Jeffrey R. Krusinski appeared in a Virginia courtroom Thursday after he was charged with misdemeanor sexual battery in a case that has garnered national attention because of the proliferation of sexual assault and abuse cases in the military

Krusinski, who graduated from Fairfield High School, was chief of the Sexual Assault Prevention and Assault Office. He was removed from the post after he was accused of groping a woman in a parking lot in Arlington, Va., Sunday morning.

Judge Richard J. McCue denied a defense request to have the trial moved until September due to excessive publicity, and instead set the date for July 18.

Krusinski said he understood the charges, but did not enter a plea.

Sexual battery carries a fine of $2,500, 12 months incarceration or both.
