SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A woman has testified that a Houston-area Air Force recruiter forced her to have sex at his recruiting office, despite her efforts to resist.

The Angleton woman's testimony wrapped up a three-day Article 32 hearing for Tech. Sgt. Jaime (HYE'-meh) Rodriguez at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio. The woman said Rodriguez forced himself on her at his Lake Jackson office after he locked the door and drew the blinds.

The equivalent of a civilian grand jury proceeding will determine if he's court-martialed on allegations of sexual misconduct, rape and obstructing justice. The San Antonio Express-News (http://bit.ly/VT2cYK) reports there was no immediate decision on whether Rodriguez will be court-martialed. Lt. Col. Lynn Schmidt will decide whether the case against Rodriguez proceeds to a full trial.
