A Naval Academy midshipman once accused of sexual assault testified for the first time in open court Tuesday, telling a military judge that when he got into a car with a female classmate outside a 2012 off-campus party, he didn't think she was too drunk to know what she was doing. Midshipman Eric Graham said the alleged victim might have smelled of alcohol, but was talking and moving around on the night of a party that resulted in accusations of sexual assault against Graham and two others.

A midshipman who says she was sexually assaulted by three members of the Naval Academy football team is scheduled to testify at a preliminary hearing Wednesday. The woman has told investigators that she remembers little of the alleged assault last year, which her attorney says occurred after she became intoxicated at an off-campus party in Annapolis. Vice Adm. Michael Miller, the academy superintendent, has ordered the Article 32 hearing to help him determine whether to send the accused to court-martial.

Friends of the woman at the center of a sexual assault investigation involving three members of the Naval Academy football team testified Monday that she appeared intoxicated on the night of the alleged attacks. But none of the witnesses at a preliminary hearing Monday said the female midshipman was so drunk at an off-campus party that it became necessary to intervene, to stop her from drinking or to take her home. The woman has said she remembers little of the April 2012 night during which the three fellow midshipmen are alleged to have engaged in sexual acts with her while she was incapacitated.

WASHINGTON -- In a conversation taped by an investigator, standout Navy quarterback Lamar S. Owens Jr. tearfully apologized to the fellow midshipman he is accused of raping after admitting that he had sex with her in her Naval Academy dorm room. On the tape, played by prosecutors at a hearing yesterday to determine whether there is enough evidence for a court-martial, Owens was emotional and apologized often, at one point saying: "I'm so sorry. ... I woke up the next day and I called you, and I wanted to kill myself and I still feel like that."

Naval Academy midshipmen get a free education courtesy of American taxpayers in exchange for serving five years in the military after graduation. But when students leave the academy — voluntarily or not — they often have to repay Uncle Sam for the cost of their education. Two midshipmen are in the process of "disenrolling" from the academy as part of the fallout of a high-profile sexual assault case. But neither is likely to be hit with a tuition bill because the incident that led to their departure occurred before they agreed to serve in the military.

A military judge rejected yesterday a request by a Naval Academy oceanography professor to have the sexual harassment charges lodged against him reinvestigated by someone outside the chain of command at the academy. In an e-mail to lawyers involved in the case, a military judge at the Washington Navy Yard denied a defense request contending that Vice Adm. Rodney P. Rempt, the academy's superintendent, created an "unlawful command influence" that biased the charges against Lt. Bryan Black.
