Air Force Academy sergeant gets 4 months for bathroom video

An Air Force Academy sergeant was sentenced to four months behind bars after a court-martial panel convicted him of taking a covert bathroom video of a naked woman.

Tech. Sgt. Jose L. Vuittonet, Jr. also was reduced in rank to senior airman and given an additional three months of hard labor to follow his jail time, the academy said Tuesday in a news release.

The academy said Vuittonet was acquitted on allegations that he showed the covert video to others at the school.

Vuittonet is assigned to the academy's 306th Flying Training Group, which teaches cadets to parachute and fly gliders.

He was tried at a special court martial, which could levy smaller penalties than are available to the highest level of military courts, the general court martial.

The academy said the sergeant's charges related to an off-base incident in a private home in July 2011.

"The victim of the video-taping is a civilian, not a military member, and not a cadet," the academy said in a statement.
