Col Don Christensen (ret.), President, Protect Our Defenders and Former US Air Force Chief Prosecutor is interviewed on Michigan Radio’s “Stateside” about the epidemic of sexual assault in the military and his 23 years of service in the U.S. Air Force:
Christensen says Department of Defense leadership has failed to send a clear message that sexual assaults will be handled seriously.
Of the 20,000 sexual assaults in the military reported in 2014 by the Department of Defense, Christensen says only 200 or 300 were convicted.
“The odds are astronomically in your favor that if you conduct a sexual assault that you’ll never be held responsible.”
