A Coast Guardsman stationed in Anchorage will face a court-martial at the end of this month in Juneau, according to the Coast Guard.
District 17 Coast Guard spokesman Chief Petty Officer Kip Wadlow told the Empire that the military trial for Coast Guard fireman Roque Trevino will begin Aug. 27.
Trevino, an E-3 who works in the engineering department for Coast Guard Sector Anchorage, is accused of sexual assault. No other details were immediately available.
Wadlow said the military court will be held in the U.S. Federal Building courtroom in Juneau since the convening authority is located here.
The hearing will be open to the public and media.
