Trial Date Set For Airman's Trial On Sex Charge

Posted: Updated:

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - A judge has set a July 18 trial date for an Air Force officer who led the branch's sex assault response unit until he was charged with sexual battery.
    
Forty-one-year-old Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinski appeared Thursday at an arraignment in Arlington County General District Court.
    
Arlington police say he groped a woman in a parking lot early Sunday in a section of Crystal City that is home to several popular nightspots.
    
Krusinski and his lawyer, Sheryl Shane, declined comment after the hearing.
    
The Air Force removed Krusinski from his post after it learned of his arrest, which was first reported by ARLnow.com.
    
Shane argued for a later trial date, saying she might have numerous witnesses and need a significant investigation.
    
If convicted, he faces up to a year in prison.
