CAMP PENDLETON, CALIF. — A Camp Pendleton Marine who said she was raped has been found guilty in a military court of obstructing justice and attempted adultery.

The woman, a staff sergeant whose name is being withheld, was convicted Wednesday by a military judge, who did not explain his reasoning, according to U-T San Diego.

The woman and another Marine both said they’d had sex in a hotel room last year, but the woman said she’d been too drunk to consent, a statement prosecutors regarded as false. The other Marine said he didn’t know she was married and didn’t appear overly intoxicated.

The woman’s husband reported the encounter.

The staff sergeant is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday and could get a year in jail, reduction of rank to private, loss of pay and dishonorable discharge.
