Two Servicemembers Found Guilty of Attempting to Have Sex with a Minor at Lackland AFB

Two San Antonio servicemembers have been found guilty of attempting to have sex with a minor.

Mark Antonio Pazmino, a retired member of the Army and linguist for the National Security Agency, and Mark Richard Hardin, an active duty Navy member and medical technician at San Antonio Military Medical Center, were sentenced this month by a federal judge. They will each spend a decade in prison.

In 2016, Pazmino responded to a personal ad that he believed was written by a 14-year-old girl living on Lackland Air Force Base. According to court records, Pazmino told the girl in chat messages as well as in phone conversations that he wanted to "engage in sexual activity" with her. The 14-year-old was actually an undercover agent with the Air Force.

Pazmino was arrested by federal agents when he showed up at Lackland to meet the girl in July 2016. He has been in custody since, and pled guilty to attempted coercion and enticement of a minor in May 2017. He was sentenced on Jan. 29. In addition to a decade in prison, Pazmino will be under supervised release for 20 years.
