BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (AP) — A staff sergeant at Beale Air Force Base has received a dishonorable discharge and been sentenced to three years confinement for sexual misconduct involving female members of the Air Force.

Military judge Lt. Col. Jeffrey Ferguson on Friday found 29-year-old Staff Sgt. Tom Barlow guilty of eight charges, including wrongful sexual contact and sexual harassment, stemming from separate incidents in Yuba County and Iraq.

One victim testified that after going to lunch with Barlow in August 2010, he drove her to a parking lot in Linda and proceeded to touch her breasts and genitalia, the Appeal-Democrat of Marysville reports.

A second woman described an incident at Camp Bucca, Iraq, in November 2007 in which Barlow pressured her to perform oral sex.

Barlow testified Thursday that the acts were consensual.

    My rapist did more than that and only got three MONTHS!

    There’s a guy sitting in jail waiting on a 4 year sentence to start, and all he did was hack. Non violent crime with no gains involved.
    Take these three cases, see if there is any justice anymore. See if there is any fairness.
    There are thousands like these.
