An evidence hearing in the case in March included a long walk through the married colonel's alleged love life, which prosecutors say included adulterous acts with a half-dozen mistresses. He's also charged with taking an obscene selfie "while in uniform and seated in his office" at Schriever, one of the military's most secure and secretive bases.

A Schriever Air Force Base colonel will head to court-martial in August on a pile of charges, including multiple instances of adultery and a sexual assault.

Prosecutors allege Col. Eugene Marcus Caughey's misconduct dates back to 2013. The rape allegation stems from a 2014 incident at Schriever, where prosecutors allege Caughey assaulted a woman "while holding her against the wall and floor."

The trial is scheduled to begin Aug. 8, Peterson Air force Base spokesman Steve Brady said.

Caughey, who was reassigned to Air Force Space Command headquarters pending his court-martial, faces a maximum penalty of life in prison if convicted.
