February 01, 2019 - 5:07 PM

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. - An Air Force Academy cadet has been convicted of sexual assault in a military trial.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports Armis Sunday was convicted Friday after a four-day court-martial.

His attorneys say an appeal is planned based on evidence that the judge barred them from discussing at the trial.

The charge carries a sentence of up to 30 years in prison. A sentencing hearing began Friday.

Prosecutors say Sunday groped a female cadet while she was asleep in her dorm room. Defence attorneys say the two had consensual sexual contact.

Armis is a third-year student.
