Staff Sgt. Luis Walker was convicted after being investigated on accusations of sexual abuse against his female subordinates while he was assigned to the 326th Training Squadron at Lackland Air Force Base in the San Antonio, Texas, region.

Walker will be reduced to the lowest enlisted rank, be dishonorably discharged and forfeit all pay and allowances.

He is among 12 instructors investigated for sexual misconduct against at least 31 trainees, and one of six to face charges in the scandal.

The commander of Air Force training earlier named Maj. Gen. Margaret Woodward to head a two-month inquiry, covering all four Air Force bases that handle basic training, which are located in Texas and Mississippi.

At Lackland, one trainer had earlier pleaded guilty to having an improper relationship with a trainee, as part of a plea agreement.
