NORFOLK, Va. — A Coast Guard Academy cadet was found guilty of sexual assault and sentenced in a court martial Thursday.

Cadet Anthony J. Livingstone was found guilty of sexual assault and sentenced to eight years in prison and dismissed from the service.

Livingstone was charged with sexual assault, extortion, and conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman.

In September, another cadet, Cadet Michael Shermot was found guilty of sexual assault. He was sentenced to one year in prison and was dismissed from the service by a military judge in the general court-martial.

Livingstone was suspended from the Corps of Cadets December 2015, shortly after being charged.
