Civilian prosecutors said Wednesday they will not file charges against an officer accused of sexually assaulting a female cadet while both attended the Air Force Academy, according to The Associated Press.
Prosecutors said they weighed Colorado laws with the investigative reports on Capt. Joseph Harding, whose alleged assault on a fellow cadet in 2000 sparked a scandal at the academy.
Chief prosecutor Diana May said authorities concluded they could not meet the required burden of proof.
This was after , a military judge in September 2006 dismissed a rape charge against Harding because the accuser’s therapist refused to release her medical records on grounds that they were confidential.
