Midshipmen set to testify in sexual assault case

WASHINGTON - U.S. Naval Academy students are scheduled to testify in a hearing to determine if three of their fellow midshipmen will face a court-martial in a sexual assault case.

The hearing is continuing Monday after a long week that spanned the holiday weekend.

A Navy investigator was cross-examined by three defense teams late Sunday night at the Washington Navy Yard. Special Agent Jesus Torres described the investigation as one of the biggest he has taken part in.

A female midshipman was allegedly sexually assaulted at an April 2012 party off campus in Annapolis. But she testified she doesn't directly remember having sex with the men after a night of heavy drinking.

She finished her testimony Sunday after spending days on the stand last week. The Article 32 hearing began Tuesday.
