WASHINGTON -- The days-long hearing into alleged sexual assaults involving Naval Academy football players made no progress Saturday, as the accuser again said she was too exhausted to testify. The officer conducting the hearing ordered her to get some rest and return ready to testify on Sunday morning. Defense attorneys were unwilling to question other witnesses out of order, so Saturday's session - the fifth day of the hearing - ended with no testimony. The Naval Academy's superintendent, Vice Adm. Michael Miller, has ordered the Article 32 hearing to help him determine whether to charge three mishipmen who have been accused of engaging in sexual acts with a drunken classmate at an off-campus party at a house known as the "black pineapple" or the "football house" in April 2012.

Prosecutors told a military hearing officer on Tuesday that three Naval Academy football players engaged in sexual acts with a drunken female midshipman at an off-campus party last year and then lied about it repeatedly to investigators. Lawyers for the defendants said prosecutors presented scant proof of sex - just conflicting statements and hearsay - and that the alleged victim was not so drunk that she wasn't able to give her consent. They said the woman wasn't able to keep her story straight through the investigation or the hearing.

The midshipman who says she was sexually assaulted by three Naval Academy football players while she was incapacitated last spring described a boozy night of partying that left her with spotty memories and a knot in her back. Testifying Wednesday at a preliminary military hearing, the woman said it was only after the party that she pieced together what might have happened to her through Twitter and Facebook posts and rumors that swirled around the academy. She said she was reluctant to report her suspicions about the night of April 14, 2012, for fear it would lead to an embarrassing and painful investigation.

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."

Getting a flag from the federal government wouldn't have provided much consolation for the family of the U.S. Postal Service employee who was shot to death last year on his route in Prince George's County. But June Barnette, a great-uncle of Tyson Barnette, says a flag would have been a welcome gesture of respect for the 26-year-old letter carrier, whose death sparked a national debate about the safety of after-hours mail delivery. "I feel deep in my heart that it would have been appreciated," said Barnette, who lives in South Carolina, where his great-nephew grew up. "Ain't nothing like that going to hurt.

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.
