The second of two Dover Air Force Base airmen was sentenced for sexually abusing a runaway 15-year-old girl.

Dalian Washington, 24, was sentenced in U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, receiving a ten-year prison sentence on Tuesday.

In October, he pleaded guilty to one count of sex trafficking of a child and prosecutors dropped charges of conspiracy and sex abuse of a minor.

A month prior, Airman Akeem Beazer, 21, pleaded guilty to sexually abusing the same teen. In January, he was sentenced to 30 months in prison.

Officials say the young girl was having problems at home and often lived on the street.  Court documents state Washington picked her up at a local grocery store after she had run away from her abusive home, crying and bruised.  Washington brought her back to base, with Beazer, and had sex with her -without knowledge of her age.

Prosecutors alleged that both airmen continued their sexual abuse of the girl after finding out she was a minor.  The runaway girl, who was “essentially homeless” stayed at the base barracks on and off for a period of months.

She stayed in Washington’s barracks room on and off from September 2015 to January 2016 and he continued to have unprotected sex with her, court documents state. He also recorded her performing oral sex, according to Delaware Online.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth L. Van Pelt said Beazer’s crimes were more opportunistic than Washington’s, who sought out and initiated bringing the girl on base for sex.  She said investigators discovered that Washinton had sex with other underage girls as well.
