A soldier found guilty of sexually assaulting multiple women will face an 18-year military prison sentence

 A soldier from Fort Bliss, Texas, has been sentenced to 18 years in military prison after a court-martial found him guilty of multiple counts of sexual assault.


A military judge on Friday found Pfc. Christian Alvarado guilty of sexually assaulting Pfc. Asia Graham, who was found dead in her barracks one year after accusing Alvarado of sexual assault.

ABC affiliate KVIA reported Alvarado was found guilty of assaulting Graham and another woman, but was acquitted in some of the multiple charges he faced of sexual assault, aggravated assault, and abusive sexual conduct.

After he serves out his prison sentence, he will be dishonorably discharged from the US Army, KVIA reported.

His conviction comes months after Graham was found dead in her barracks. The Army earlier this year concluded there was nofoul play involved in her death. Autopsy results found that she had died of a drug overdose.
