WPAFB Lt. Col. acquitted of charges

Kabban had been charged with aggravated sexual assault and indecent acts or liberties with a child. The panel of the court deliberated for approximately three hours before returning with their decision late Friday night.

Kabban, 41, is accused of raping a girl twice in Centerville in 2011 when she was 13. The girl, a relative, also said he abused her sexually and physically from 2005 to 2011.

She testified Tuesday at the hearing being conducted at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The girl, in her testimony, also acknowledged lying about sex with a schoolmate and changing her story another time when she claimed she was gang-raped.

Kabban, who lives in Beavercreek, had pleaded not guilty to all charges, which include rape of a child and aggravated sexual contact and aggravated sexual conduct with a child.

Kabban came to Wright-Patterson in 2009. He is deputy chief of the development and planning branch of the business and enterprise directorate of the Life Cycle Management Center.
