Army recognizes kid-on-kid sex assault cases at Alaska bases
FORT WAINWRIGHT, Alaska (AP) - Army officials are now acknowledging they've investigated reports of child-on-child sexual assaults at bases in Alaska.
Initially, Army's Criminal Investigation Command released a list of sexual assaults among juveniles that showed 223 worldwide since the start of 2007 - but none in Alaska. Meanwhile, state authorities tallied five cases.
That brings Alaska's total to at least eight cases, five of them at Fort Wainwright.
