The Naha District Court handed down a sentence of 10 years to Navy Seaman Christopher Daniel Browning and nine years to Petty Officer Skyler A Dozierwalker for raping a Japanese woman after attacking her in a parking lot.
The rape occurred in October 2012.
At the time, both men were visiting from Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth in Texas.
After their arrests, Lt. Gen. Salvatore Angelella, commander of U.S. forces in Japan, put troops at Okinawa’s Kadena Air Base on a curfew and apologized to the victim.
Finally, someone responds to rape by restricting what men do, not what women do—exactly the response I want out of the United States military.
