U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. — Two Air Force Academy cadets are facing charges for use of cocaine, according to Academy officials.

An Article 32 hearing will be held Wednesday for Cadet First Class Kyler Ehm, who is charged with four specifications of wrongful use of cocaine.

An Article 32 hearing is similar to a civilian grand jury proceeding. It’s used to determine if probable cause exists to support the charges and specifications.

A court martial will be held Thursday and Friday for Cadet Second Class Harry Vaughn. Vaughn is charged with two specifications of making false official statements to law enforcement about the purchase and use of cocaine, and two specifications of wrongful use and distribution of cocaine.

UPDATE (October 28, 2019): Vaughn pled guilty to one charge and two specifications of making false official statements to law enforcement about his purchase and use of cocaine, and one charge and two specifications for the wrongful use and distribution of cocaine. He was sentenced Friday to a reprimand, seven days confinement, a fine of $1,000, and dismissal from the Air Force. He will now have a federal conviction on his record.
