If convicted of rape, Lt. Col. Humphrey Daniels III could go to prison for the next 30 years. The career Air Force officer, who faces court-martial next year, also has been hit by charges of dereliction of duty and conduct unbecoming an officer. Prosecutors say Daniels violated security procedures when he took home classified information and then allegedly left it unattended at his Maryland residence,
Daniels is presently assigned to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. Prior to that, he was commander of Detachment 1, 50th Operations Group. His court martial is slated to begin on February 22 of 2017 and is expected to last approximately one week
The Air Force is being very vague about details of the case. All we have been able to find out so far, is the alleged rape of an unidentified female civilian took place "on or about" Minot AFB on July 14, 1998. No explanation was given by the JAG as to why it took so long for the "victim" to come forward with her accusation.
At the time, Daniels was a second lieutenant assigned to the 91st Missile Wing at the sprawling USAF installation in North Dakota. MilitaryCorruption.com has learned the "rape" allegation was investigated at the time, and the case dropped for lack of evidence. Why it has been revived some two decades later is a mystery to us.
"The sexual assault allegation stems from an encounter that occurred some two decades ago," said the accused colonel's attorney, David Sheldon. "My client maintains he is innocent and we are confident that he will be proven not guilty at the conclusion of court-martial."
