His sentencing is scheduled for July 30. Velarde was first charged by Criminal Complaint on Oct. 25, 2018. He was then indicted by a federal grand jury in Denver on Nov. 8, 2018. The jury trial started on Monday.
The Department of Justice, citing court documents, is reporting Velarde "violently" raped a female cadet in her dorm room. He reportedly ignored multiple pleas to stop the sex assault. A sexual assault examination revealed physical injuries sustained during the sexual assault, and a doctor at the Air Force Academy later diagnosed her with a concussion sustained during the assault.
