A top combat photographer who allegedly made passes at women could be hit with a staggeringly severe punishment — dwarfing the sentence Bowe Bergdahl, the Army sergeant charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, may face.
Aaron Allmon is accused of trying to pick up women in the public affairs office at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota — and alleged infraction that could land him a sentence of 130 years behind bars, The Washington Times reports.
Of the four women, three are military and one is civilian.
The civilian, who worked in the public affairs office, said Allmon kissed her on the forehead, touched her shoulders and made sexual comments. As well as the unwanted sexual contact charges, he also faces one of lying to an investigator. During an interview he said he did not have his cell phone on him, but halfway through he admitted he had lied and handed it over.
His sister, Lisa Roper, said he did not want to hand over his phone because it contained nude pictures of his wife.
After investigators checked the phone, they found no messages between him and his accusers.

The Times says an examination of Allmon’s case reveals the women’s accusations amount to three kisses, six touches and comments of a sexual nature — basically “tastelessly hitting on them” at worst.
“It was out and out vindictiveness set up to destroy a man who didn’t do what they wanted. A group of young women who are brand new in the military and because they didn’t get their way they set out to destroy a man of 19 years in the Air Force.”
