A U.S. Air Force Academy cadet was charged this week with running a porn site from his dormitory room at a prestigious Colorado Springs air force academy. Academy administrators discovered the porn site just before the cadet was scheduled to graduate.

Identified as academy senior Sterling Barnes, the cadet was also allegedly using the Internet to arrange sex orgies from his website, which included photos and videotape of himself engaging in multiple-partner sex and sodomizing women in the presence of other men.

Barnes has been formally charged with two violations and three specifications of violating the Uniform Code of Military Justice, a spokesperson for the academy told XBiz.

Those charges include the use of government-provided hardware and software to advertise and sell pornography for commercial gain, and wrongfully viewing, displaying, and storing "obscene" material on his computer.

Barnes faces a court martial and a maximum federal prison term of up to 14 years, the spokesperson said. He will also be forced to forfeit all pay and allowances provided by the air force.

The cadet is currently being held in Squadroom 41 where disciplinary cases are temporarily housed, the spokesperson told XBiz.

Barnes' pornography infractions allegedly took place between September 2002 and April of this year.

Pending an investigation by air force officials, the academy will hold a hearing, referred to as an Article 32, to determine whether to convict the cadet.

According to the academy spokesperson, the Colorado Springs location is the "new kid on the block" in terms of its status among other U.S. Air Force Academies. However, the school has been in the scandal spotlight since last spring when dozens of female cadets came forward with accusations of sexual assault charges.

A date for Barnes' Article 32 has not yet been set.
