Gay Air Force Sgt. Dismissed After Police Tell Military Of Marriage License

Posted by | March 13, 2010 15:38 | Filed under: Top Stories

Former Air Force Sergeant Jene Newsome was discharged under the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy because police saw a marriage license at her home when they were there with an arrest warrant for her partner on theft charges.  The Rapid City, SD police informed the Ellsworth Air Force Base, which then took action against Newsome.

Newsome and the American Civil Liberties Union have filed a complaint against the department claiming police invaded her privacy.

Rapid City Police Chief Steve Allender says Newsome was uncooperative, and the marriage license was relevant because it established the residency and the relationship of the two women.
