ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) The U.S. Naval Academy on Wednesday charged three midshipmen - all current or former football players - with sexually assaulting a female student at an off-campus house in Annapolis more than a year ago.
The academy said in a news release that the male midshipmen are being charged with two violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. One charge involves rape, sexual assault or other sexual misconduct. The other is for making a false official statement.
The academy did not identify the three male students, and it was not immediately clear if they have an attorney.
