An Air Force basic training instructor has been sentenced to 45 days' confinement for being sexually involved with a female trainee on a Texas base rocked by a sex scandal.

Staff Sgt. Jason Manko was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to wrongfully seeking an intimate relationship and wrongfully engaging in sexual activity with a trainee.

Manko also was reduced to an airman first class during a special court-martial at the Lackland base in San Antonio.

He was ordered to forfeit $500 in pay per month for three months and given 30 days' hard labor.

He's among more than a dozen instructors investigated in a scandal that led to charges against six. Manko is the fifth to be sentenced.

More than 40 women have been identified as victims. The investigation continues.
