Air Force Academy investigates possible cheating

By The Associated Press
AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) -- The Air Force Academy is investigating whether 40 freshman cadets cheated in a chemistry class.<br /> <br /> Academy officials said Monday some cadets possibly copied portions of a lab report assignment.<br /> <br /> The school says about 500 cadets are enrolled in the class.<br /> <br /> Initial reports said 11 cadets were under investigation, but the academy said later it was 40.<br /> <br /> Lt. Gen. Michelle D. Johnson, the academy superintendent, says she is disappointed by the allegations.<br /> <br /> Cheating is forbidden by the academy's honor code. Cadets who break the code can be expelled, but the Colorado Springs Gazette reports ( http://tinyurl.com/mchobbr ) freshmen violators are generally treated more leniently under current rules. They can be placed on honor probation instead.<br /> <br /> Cadets on probation are generally confined to campus and assigned extra duty, including miles of marching.
