SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A military jury will hear evidence for sentencing of a Texas Air Force basic training instructor charged in a sex scandal surrounding instructors at the base.

The jury of seven commissioned Air Force officers, including two women, will begin hearing evidence Thursday at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio in the case against Tech Sgt. Christopher Smith.

He was convicted Wednesday after about three hours’ deliberation of wooing one female trainee and fraternizing with another at Lackland.

Smith was acquitted of making sexual advances on the female trainee he wooed and of obstructing justice.

Investigators say at least 38 female trainees were victimized and 15 instructors implicated.

Staff Sgt. Luis Walker got a 20-year prison term last month for rape and sexual assault.
