There is an army Drill Instructor doing 25 years hard time for consensual sex with a subordinate. A former president, on the other hand, walked for essentially the same thing.
No one expects soldiers to be celibate, but they do expect them to obey regulations that, among other things, prohibit sex between soldiers in the same unit of different ranks.
