ADFA cadet charged with sexual assault

A TEENAGE Australian Defence Force Academy cadet has been charged over the alleged sexual assault last month of an 18-year-old colleague while she was sleeping.

Police arrested the man, also 18, yesterday.

The cadet was due to face court late yesterday on one charge of sexual intercourse without consent.

It is not the first time the ADFA has faced abuse claims among its cadets.

A 19-year-old was charged with sexual assault in 2014 and two men received good behaviour bonds for their role in the making of a sex tape in 2011.
