Ex-military leader in Texas gets jail for abuse


SAN ANTONIO (AP) — An ex-trainer at a South Texas military installation has been sentenced to five months in jail and booted from the service for using bleach to abuse recruits.

A military judge on Thursday sentenced Staff Sgt. Robert Hudson of Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland. Hudson pleaded guilty to misconduct charges for making trainees sick during latrine duty and having sex with a female recruit in 2011.

Authorities say Hudson complained that a latrine smelled like urine and he dumped bleach in the area. He forced several recruits into the bathroom to clean up. Some required medical attention or collapsed.

Hudson pleaded guilty to six charges and 14 specifications in a plea agreement. A judge then decided on the bad-conduct discharge.

Hudson is the 17th person convicted in the training instructor scandal.
