“The conduct in this case is reprehensible not only because of the nature of the crime itself, but because of where it occurred,” said U.S. Attorney Jason Dunn in the release. “Our service academies are national treasures. We send our best and brightest young adults there to become soldiers and to serve our country. It is the last place one should be attacked so violently. We are pleased that justice was done. The victim showed tremendous courage throughout this ordeal, and I am proud that she will someday be defending our country as an Air Force officer.”

The case was investigated by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations. Velarde is scheduled to be sentenced July 30.
