Lieutenant Defends "Private Life" at Hearing

Lieutenant Crista Davis defended her right to a "private life" yesterday at a public hearing on the charges resulting from her affair with a married Air Force Academy instructor. She denied wrongdoing and asked that the military not judge her on the basis of her personal correspondence with the instructor. Davis, who is black, has accused the Air Force of prosecuting her because she has filed sex and race discrimination complaints against several officers. The Air Force denies this accusation.
