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.

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 former Navy football player was found not guilty Thursday of sexually assaulting a fellow midshipman at an off-campus party in Annapolis two years ago in a case that has drawn national scrutiny to the elite training ground for future officers of the Navy and Marine Corps. Allegations that Midshipman Joshua Tate and two teammates had sexual contact with the woman while she was too intoxicated to consent have helped fuel the debate over the prosecution of sexual assaults in the military.

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.
