Of course, you all remember the case of Airman 1st Class Cassandra M. Hernandez, who was gang-raped by fellow Airmen Russell J. Basile, Jerrell W. Apache, and Rotez J. Butler. After opting not to testify against her assailants, she was charged with committing indecent acts and her rapists were offered immunity to testify against her.
Well, there is a happy update! The charges against her have been dropped!
The commander of the 43rd Airlift Wing at Pope Air Force Base decided this week to drop the charge of committing an indecent act against Hernandez, 20, who instead pleaded guilty to underage drinking and received a nonjudicial punishment, said one of her attorneys, Capt. Chris Eason.
Thank fucking god. Though, of course, it would be nice if the rapists were actually punished.
