May 26, 1997|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A former Air Force base security officer was sentenced to 30 years in prison a day after a military jury convicted him of rape and 14 related charges. Master Sgt. Napolean Bailey, 39, will also receive a dishonorable discharge, forfeit all pay and be reduced to the lowest enlisted rank. The former Fairchild Air Force Base security officer was convicted on 15 of the 17 charges he faced for attacks reported by three women. One victim was a fellow base security officer. He could have faced life in prison, but will now be eligible for parole in 10 years, base spokesman Capt. Mark Brown said. Bailey may also appeal the sentence, Brown said.
