SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- On June 10, Airman 1st Class Michael A. Fulford, Jr., 50th Security Forces Squadron, was convicted by a Special Court-Martial of two specifications of larceny. The case was tried by a military judge alone. Fulford used a texting app on his cell phone to make the victim, a fellow member of his unit, believe he was a woman and start a text messaging relationship. Through these false pretenses, Fulford wrongfully obtained $1,500 and a cell phone from the victim.
For this crime, Fulford was sentenced to 30 days of confinement, 30 days of hard labor without confinement, reduction to the grade of E-1, and forfeiture of $1,031 pay per month for two months.
