To get an idea of the scope of the problem, we can turn to the Pentagon's own data. More 19,000 sexual assaults occur annually in the ranks. That's 52 a day. Only 13.5 percent of military sexual assaults are reported. (At the military academies, only 10 percent of victims report, suggesting that the climate is even less conducive to supporting victims.) Few cases make it to trial. Sentences often amount to slaps on the wrist. Last year, 10.5 percent of accused offenders were allowed to "resign in lieu of court martial." And among those who were convicted in military court, one-third were allowed to keep their careers and stay in the military, despite ample evidence that most sex offenders are serial predators.
