AIR FORCE ACADEMY CADET GETS PRISON

By all accounts, the senior cadet was a brilliant student of computer science, had a bright future ahead in the Air Force, but his self-admitted "sickness" got the best of him and destroyed what could have been an outstanding military career.
"I love the Air Force and never wanted to bring discredit to it," Cook sobbed before getting the news he is going to prison for viewing child porn on his computer and secretly video-taping two civilian women as they disrobed to take a shower in his off-campus home.
In a plea bargain deal with prosecutors, a third charge - of Cook allegedly "groping" a female - was dropped. While his defense team asked the military judge to impose a two year term and the JAG wanted five years of incarceration, Lt. Col. Brian Teter elected to be lenient. He split the difference, putting the disgraced cadet behind bars for 30 months.
HIS COPIOUS TEARS WERE ALL IN VAIN
Cook shed plenty of tears as he pleaded for mercy and apologized for what he had done. The tall, slender cadet bemoaned his unfortunate "fetish for young girls."
The honor student was nabbed when authorities were alerted the cadet was uploading forbidden images to his computer. Cook knew enough to avoid the Air Force Academy's computer network, which has blocks anyway on such material, but figured - with all his computer know-how - he could satisfy his twisted cravings without being tracked.
He was wrong.
