Army drill sergeant accused of numerous sex assaults in Afghanistan and Missouri – The Washington Post

An Army staff sergeant is accused of sexually assaulting several female soldiers since 2011, including at least one while he was deployed to Afghanistan and others more recently while he served as a drill sergeant, according to military officials and court documents.

The accusations are detailed in a charging document filed against Staff Sgt. Angel M. Sanchez, who appeared at a pretrial hearing at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri on Wednesday, a proceeding that could lead to a court-martial later this year. Sanchez has served at the base since August, training new soldiers with the 14th Military Police Brigade.

If the allegations are anywhere near true, his old unit just let the problem slide, and in doing so, put him in a position where he had near total power over some of the most vulnerable people in the service.

  1. Most victims of SA don’t report–1 in 10 at most in the general female population–so it’s not surprising nothing by victims was said out of fear on various levels. I bet he has a history even before joining the military.

    1. I think for a starter chemical castration to stop any future 2 minute sex events and then go from there. I understand there is an island prison off of the coast of Washington…

  2. HAHA: “If you give me two minutes, it will be the best two minutes of your life,”

    Why he’s a regular Sex God! Mr. Me Love You Short Time. Irresistible.

  3. Guy will be hammered, and rightfully so. Much as I thought it was too much ado about not so much, I have seen a lot of people arriving in the brigade with prior allegation made against them that were disposed of with “no action taken” which, in military records, will remain a blight that has to be explained with every transfer, as many units, such as mine, are using the provost marshal at BCT level to thoroughly scrub the records of all new arrivals. “No action taken” could mean anything from “You are guilty but we are going to let it slide” to “you are guilty, but we can’t prove it” to “we don’t think you are guilty.” I just had to contact a chain of command from four years ago to get them to explain “No action taken” as a result of a sexual harassment charge.
