|On Monday, Air Force Sergeant Luis Walker will face a court-martial in Texas--the first case in the military's biggest sexual assault scandal in 16 years, and one that is shining a harsh spotlight on the military's supposed "zero-tolerance" policy toward sex offenders. An internal investigation has discovered 31 more victims, at least five other instructors have been charged with rape or inappropriate relations with female trainees, and 35 more have been removed from their positions pending investigations. Walker has been charged with multiple counts of rape and aggravated sexual assault.|
