The Royal Canadian Air Cadet Organisation announced on Friday that it was suspending two of its senior cadets from all duties while the organization carries out a full review of the case. Royal Canadian Air Cadet member Maelle Julie Wageman, 25, of Windsor, Ontario, was charged on Wednesday with the sexual assault of a 17-year-old girl. Details of the crime were released by Windsor police on Friday. Wageman, who has worked for the organization for the past five years as a class liaison officer and mountaineer, is accused of taking sexual advantage of a minor. She has been charged with sexual assault and two counts of sexual interference.
Police, in a press release, said the girl told them she was “involved in online sexual conduct with a total stranger in the Netherlands.” She claimed that she had a brief sexual encounter with Wageman in April of this year, then met her again in Windsor. According to police, the girl claimed that after she visited the Netherlands again in June, Wageman “solicited additional sexually explicit pictures from her through an Instagram account.” She claimed she spent the next day at Wageman’s house and had sexual relations with her.
In a statement to the media, Benjamin Perrin, Chief of the Royal Canadian Air Cadet Organisation, said: “Sexual assault of any kind is not acceptable in our organization, and we do not condone this behavior. Our thoughts are with the victim of this crime and her family at this time.”
Wageman is scheduled to appear in court at 10 a.m. next Friday.
