SAN ANTONIO — A military jury in South Texas has convicted a Houston-area recruiter on multiple sexual assault-related counts.
Air Force Tech. Sgt. Jaime Rodriguez faces up to life in prison in the penalty phase Thursday at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland.
The San Antonio Express-News reports Rodriguez previously pleaded guilty to six charges and 23 specifications of wrongdoing. He was accused of having unprofessional relationships with recruits and an assistant.
Rodriguez late Wednesday was convicted of aggravated sexual assault, abusive sexual contact, non-forcible sodomy, aggravated sexual contact, wrongful sexual contact and exposure. He was acquitted on two sexual assault-related counts for alleged 2011 incidents with women in a back room of his office.
Rodriguez was tried at Lackland because the Air Force Recruiting Service is headquartered in San Antonio.
