AIR FORCE RECRUITER SENTENCED TO LONG
© 2017 MilitaryCorruption.com
Christmas came a little early this year for a former Air Force recruiter we wrote about in 2013 who couldn't keep his hands off some of the teenage girls he was trying to recruit into the military.
Then-S/SGT Jamie Rodriguez was busted at court-martial and convicted during a time when more than a few recruiting sergeants were being nailed on similar charges - aggravated sexual assault, including sodomy and indecent exposure.
Sent to the Leavenworth D.B. for 27 years, it looked like Rodriguez's future was pretty bleak. But he didn't give up.
RECRUITER CATCHES A BIG BREAK
The Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals took a look at his conviction, found some issues, and sent the case down to a lower court where Rodriguez's sentence was considerably shortened to just six years.
The ex-recruiter took advantage of his good fortune, and, based on "good behavior" at the Kansas prison, got 18 months knocked off the lesser sentence. Now he's a free man, albeit with a criminal record.
We didn't have much confidence he would amount to anything back when we first covered his case (see related stories box below). But we can hope that Rodriguez has learned from the mess he got himself into and will somehow straighten out his life now. It won't be easy, but in this season of our Savior's birth, let Christmas 2017 be the turning point in this former non-com's life.
