SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A prosecutor says a U.S. Air Force base instructor on trial in a military sex abuse scandal posed as a "wolf in sheep's clothing."
Closing arguments were being held Friday in the court-martial of Staff Sgt. Luis Walker at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas.
Walker faces the most serious charges, and prosecutors call his trial a cornerstone of the larger investigation.
Walker is charged with 28 counts including rape and aggravated sexual assault involving at least 10 female trainees.
Lackland is where every U.S. airman receives basic training. Prosecutor Maj. Patricia Gruen accused Walker of taking advantage of female trainees already terrified of their instructors.
Walker's defense team will present closing arguments later Friday.
