Court-Martial Date Set in Naval Academy Case



    A court-martial has been scheduled for February for a U.S. Naval Academy student accused of aggravated sexual assault.

    Midshipman Josh Tate appeared at an arraignment Monday at the Washington Navy Yard.

    The court-martial is scheduled to begin Feb. 10.

    The case stems from an April 2012 party at an off-campus house in Annapolis. The alleged victim had been drinking heavily and has testified that she cannot remember having sex with Tate.

    Another student also faces a separate court-martial in the case. It is scheduled for Jan. 27. Midshipman Eric Graham is charged with abusive sexual contact.
