A U.S. Air Force Academy cadet was found guilty of wrongful use of cocaine in a court martial last week, according to the Academy. 

Cadet Second Class Daven Horne was convicted at the conclusion of a general court martial on Thursday. He was found not guilty of wrongful use of marijuana.

Horne was convicted by a court martial panel of five officers. He was sentenced to one month confinement and forfeiture of all pay and allowances. 

A decision will be made later regarding disenrollment from USAFA, discharge from the military, and recoupment.
