Air Force Sex Scandal: Staff Sgt. Kwinton Estacio Pleads Guilty To Violating Rules In Tryst

Posted: Updated:

SAN ANTONIO -- An Air Force instructor charged in a widening sex scandal at Lackland Air Force Base has admitted to having a tryst with a boot camp graduate.

Staff Sgt. Kwinton Estacio pleaded guilty Monday to charges of violating Air Force rules that prohibit instructors from having personal relationships with trainees. But on the more serious charge of sexual assault, Estacio pleaded not guilty and requested a trial.

Military prosecutors have investigated more than a dozen instructors at Lackland and charged six with crimes ranging from rape to adultery. Estacio is the fourth instructor to go on trial.

Lackland is where all American airmen report for basic training.
