Pentagon: Air Force Academy Boss Hindered Misconduct Probe

· Jun. 24, 2016, 6:09 pm

The Defense Department has released a report on allegations that the Air Force Academy did not adequately investigate allegations of sexual assault and other misconduct by football players.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports the Pentagon's inspector general found that a former Air Force Academy boss hindered an investigation into athlete misconduct by shielding a football coach from questioning. However, investigators say the issue didn't rise to the level of impeding an investigation.

The report released Friday says there is no documented evidence of special treatment for a football player suspected of drug use and complaints about an officer's interference in a sexual assault cadet.

The report is also says the Air Force Office of Special Investigations could do a better job documenting allegations of command interference.
