Pair of Guam airmen face trial on sex offenses in unrelated cases | Stars and Stripes

A pair of airmen assigned to Andersen Air Force Base on Guam face separate courts-martials there in the coming weeks for sexual and related offenses.

Trial is expected to start Feb. 11 for Tech. Sgt. Donald Frierson Jr. for the alleged 2017 sexual assault of a child in Germany, according to the Air Force court docket and a copy of his charge sheet.

In an unrelated case, Tech. Sgt. Jacory Royster is due in court Monday to start trial on charges of aggravated sexual assault, indecent language and solicitation, according to the docket and his charge sheet.

Both airmen are charged under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Trial for each man could last a week.

In Frierson’s case, prosecutors allege he touched the buttocks of a 12-year-old girl through her clothing, kissed her back and touched her upper thighs.

The incidents allegedly took place between June and September 2017 at Ramstein Air Base, Germany.
