Some people are a hot mess. How are you the head of the sexual assault prevention unit and you out here groping women?
According to The NY Post
The Air Force’s top man in charge of sexual-assault prevention was busted for allegedly groping a woman in suburban Washington D.C., police said today.
A drunken Lt. Col. Jeff Krusinski “approached a female victim in a parking lot and grabbed her breasts and buttocks,” according to a report by the Arlington County police.
The alleged groping happened in the 500 block of 23rd Street in Crystal City at 12:35 a.m. yesterday, cops said.
“The victim fought the suspect off as he attempted to touch her again and alerted police,” according to Arlington County cops.
Krusinski, 41, of Arlington, Va., was removed from his position as head of the branch’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office, Air Force spokeswoman Natasha Waggoner said.
“This report is extremely disturbing. It is clear that the status quo regarding sexual assaults in the military is simply unacceptable,” said US Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).
The New York lawmaker said she’ll propose reforms next week, aimed at taking decisions on sexual assault cases outside the normal chain of command.
“We have to reform how the military handles sexual assault cases and take on the culture that perpetuates this kind of behavior,” said Gillibrand, who held hearings in March on sexual assaults in the military.
Krusinski, booked on suspicion of misdemeanor sexual battery, posted a $5,000 bond and was released.
He did not know the victim, cops said.
It wasn’t immediately clear why Krusinski had the cuts and bruises on his face in his booking mugshot.
Krusinski’s arraignment is set for Thursday.
The Air Force, on its Web site, described the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program as a program that “reinforces the Air Force’s commitment to eliminate incidents of sexual assault through awareness and prevention training, education, victim advocacy, response, reporting and accountability.”
The description continues: “Sexual assault is criminal conduct. It falls well short of the standards America expects of its men and women in uniform.”
Do you think sexual assault by and amongst the military needs to be examined more?
