Air Force verdict reached

Training instructor found guilty

A verdict and sentence were returned today in the special court-martial of former Air Force military training instructor (MTI) Staff Sgt. Robert A. Hudson.

Staff Sgt. Hudson was found guilty of having an adulterous and unprofessional relationship that began in basic training, and continued on while the Airman was in technical training at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston.

Hudson was also found guilty of maltreating eight basic military trainees, making a false official statement and obstruction of justice.

Military judge, Col. Donald Eller, Jr., sentenced Hudson to five months confinement, reduction to the grade of E-2 (Airman) and a bad conduct discharge.

This is the 17th completed court-martial in a series of allegations against military training instructors on JBSA-Lackland.
