Aaron Pernell has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for the rape of a military wife at Fort Bragg

FORT BRAGG, N.C. — An Oklahoma soldier has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for the rape of a military wife at Fort Bragg last year. The 82nd Airborne Division’s public affairs office says 23-year-old Aaron Pernell of Tulsa, Okla., will also receive a dishonorable discharge and forfeit any pay or benefits. Pernell pleaded guilty Wednesday to rape, assault and burglary charges stemming from an attack in December 2009. His sentenced was handed down by a military judge Thursday. Pernell will be eligible for parole after 10 years. Investigators say at least two men have committed a series of assaults in and around Fort Bragg since 2008, but a second suspect has not been found.
