WASHINGTON — A military hearing for three former Navy football players accused of sexual assault is set to resume after the alleged victim was given a day to rest.
Testimony was scheduled to continue Sunday morning at the Washington Navy Yard.
The hearing is being held to determine whether the three U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen will be court-martialed on the charges. It was postponed Saturday because the alleged victim said she was too fatigued to testify after a week of difficult cross-examination.
The woman, who is now a senior at the academy, allegedly was sexually assaulted at an April 2012 party after a night of heavy drinking. She says she doesn’t remember having sex with the men.
