Lt. Col. James Wilkerson Reinstated into Air Force


Lt. Col. James Wilkerson, whose case has sparked calls from Congressional lawmakers and sexual assault victims’ advocates for changes to the military justice system, had been selected for promotion to colonel before he was accused of groping a sleeping houseguest. He was convicted in November at a jury trial of aggravated sexual assault.

The fighter pilot was freed from jail and reinstated into the Air Force last month after a lieutenant general set aside his sexual-assault conviction and taken off a promotion list, the Air Force said, making it unlikely he will move up in rank any time soon.
