Charges possible in Navy football sex assault claim

By Barbara Starr

Up to three U.S. Naval Academy football players could in coming days face charges relating to an alleged sex assault of a fellow midshipman, a Navy official told CNN.

Academy Superintendent Vice Adm. Michael Miller has ordered an Article 32 proceeding in which evidence is presented during a hearing to a military legal officer, who decides whether to proceed with a court-martial, the official said.

The official, who declined to be named, would not say if all three athletes could face charges.

The case comes with concern mounting about sex abuse reports in the armed forces.

Recent figures show the rate of reported assaults going up. Recent high-profile cases have involved officers in the Air Force and the Army.

Opinion: Soldiers and sex - can men evolve?

Miller made the decision to refer the case for possible prosecution after reviewing a Naval Criminal Investigative Service report on the alleged incident last year.

According to a Defense Department official, the players were accused by the female student at the time of the alleged incident, but she subsequently dropped the matter.

She revived the complaint this year and the Navy proceeded with an investigation.

The players have not been identified.

    In this awesome scheme of things you actually get a B- just for effort and hard work. Exactly where you lost everybody was first in all the particulars. As they say, the devil is in the details... And that couldn't be more accurate right here. Having said that, allow me say to you precisely what did deliver the results. Your article (parts of it) can be really engaging which is most likely why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, although I can notice the jumps in logic you make, I am not confident of exactly how you appear to unite your details that produce the actual final result. For now I will, no doubt subscribe to your point but hope in the foreseeable future you connect your facts better.

    ^. . Background: I'm applying for an MFA in creative writing program, and I've never taken a creative writing course. Most of my creative writing knowledge comes from research I did on my own. I'm wondering if during my research I at least learned the basics of creative writing, or if I really do need to take a course before starting the program? What do you think? I know most of the literary elements and how they can be implemented, though I can't say that I implement them well..

    I have heard that you can make money from blogging, but i really don't understand the concept. How do you make the money? How much can you make? Is it hard? Is it easy? Is it time consuming? Is it worth it? If you could answer that would be great, thanks..

    For the "letter to the editor," can one send his/her blog post to the editor. The instructions say: "Letters to the editor should only be sent to The Times, and not to other publications. We do not publish open letters or third-party letters.". . Does that mean blog posts, too?. . Thanks a lot..

Are there any better ways to import my blogs?.
