Sergeant Convicted of Indecent Assault, Cleared of Rape

A military jury has acquitted U.S. Army Sergeant 1st Class Julius Davis of rape but has charged him with multiple counts of indecent assault. Davis, stationed in the U.S. military base in Darmstadt, Germany, had been charged with six counts of rape. The indecent assault convictions carry a maximum penalty of 31 years in prison, reduction of grade, forfeiture of all pay and allowances and a dishonorable discharge. Two other Army sergeants charged with sexual misconduct at the overseas base are being charged separately.
