US Naval Academy sexual assault hearing nears end

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON - A Navy investigator is testifying in a hearing to help determine whether three U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen will face a court martial on sexual assault charges.

Special Agent Michelle Robinson testified Tuesday from Bahrain by video teleconference in the Article 32 hearing at the Washington Navy Yard.

Robinson testified that the woman at the center of the case told her in an interview that she was unsure whether sexual encounters with the men were consensual or not.

The woman has testified she had been drinking heavily on the night of the April 2012 off-campus party in Annapolis, Md. She has said she has no memory of having sex with the men.

Attorneys hope to finish Tuesday. Then an investigative officer will consider the evidence and make recommendations to the academy's superintendent.
