USS Olympia SKC In Trouble
I know it's always important to give people the assumption of innocence until guilt is proven, but it looks like USS Olympia (SSN 717) will be needing a new SKC:
When the Hawaiian plane landed Friday at Phoenix's airport, Cole was arrested. That's where police said he initially denied physical contact and said he only touched the girl in an attempt to wake her before the plane landed. A short time later, police said he changed his story and admitted he had fondled himself while sitting next to the girl.People, even submariners, amaze me in their stupidity at times. A life ruined, a family broken apart, and a young girl traumatized because some idiot couldn't control his urges. I'm sure the Navy will be checking his records and auditing his parts inventory to see what other rules he decided to break.
Cole is stationed aboard the USS Olympia submarine at Pearl Harbor, where he's a chief storekeeper. Sources say he was on vacation and may have been traveling to visit his mother, who lives in Arizona.
Prosecutors said the man is married with young children, and his wife told them that she will not allow him back to their house in Hawaii because of his arrest.
