Airman found guilty at general court-martial

RAMSTEIN AIR BASE, Germany -- On April 25, a panel of officers convicted Staff Sgt. Mark Evans, 821st Security Forces Squadron stationed at Thule Air Base, Greenland, of forcible rape and assault consummated by a battery of a German national at a general court-martial here.

Evans was charged with the forcible rape of the German national, attempted sexual assault and abusive sexual contact of a fellow Airman, assault consummated by a battery of the fellow Airman and German national, and wrongfully endeavoring to impede an investigation by destroying evidence.

After several days of evidence and testimony, a panel of officers found Evans guilty of forcible rape, assault consummated by a battery of the Airman, and destruction of evidence. He was found not guilty of attempted sexual assault of the Airman, abusive sexual contact of the Airman, and assault consummated by a battery of the German national. The panel then heard matters in sentencing and on April 25, returned a sentence of reduction to E-1, confinement for 20 years, and a dishonorable discharge.

Evans will be held at Mannheim Military Prison, Germany, until he is moved to a permanent military confinement facility within the United States to serve the remainder of his sentence.
