Air Force cameraman gets 2 years for lewd acts at Bible camp

A combat cameraman at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland who exposed himself and committed other lewd acts at a Texas Bible camp a year ago was sentenced to two years in prison and a dishonorable discharge.

Former Airman 1st Class Nathan Wilson-Crow was also reduced to E-1 and must forfeit all pay and allowances, Lackland spokeswoman 1st Lt. Samantha Degnan said in an email.

Wilson-Crow was found guilty last week atcourt-martial of indecent exposure, committing lewd acts in front of a minor and providing alcohol to a person under age 21, Degnan said.

A charge sheet in the case alleged Wilson-Crow, who was assigned to the 3rd Combat Camera Squadron, victimized three people, including one younger than 16, last April.

The charges stemmed from incidents at Camp Eagle in Rocksprings, Texas. The camp is described on its website as a Bible-based camp that provides “moral and physical infrastructure” in a “beautiful and rugged environment.”

Wilson-Crow was a volunteer at the camp, the San Antonio Express-News reported.

The newspaper reported a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel arranged for Wilson-Crow to visit the camp, where he was to talk about the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps. The retired officer reported the allegations after he learned about the airman’s misconduct at the camp, according to the Express-News.

At the camp, Wilson-Crow allegedly assaulted one girl by slapping her on the buttocks in what he called “a good game tap, just joking around,” the newspaper reported. He also exposed himself and performed a lewd act on an 18-year-old in front of a girl under 16 in a game of truth-or-dare.

A jury acquitted the airman April 25 of inappropriate sexual contact and assault consummated by a battery, two charges related to the camp incidents.

The jury also acquitted him of two specifications of rape unrelated to the Bible camp misconduct. The rape charges involved one woman and stemmed from two separate incidents last summer.
