   WASHINGTON (AP) - A Pentagon report finds students at the three U.S. military academies often believe they have to put up with sexist and offensive behavior, reflecting a culture of disrespect that permeates the schools and fuels reports of sexual harassment and assaults.
   The report being released today points to scandals involving sports teams at the Army, Navy and Air Force academies during the last school year. It urges leaders to do more to improve training and prevention programs.
   The report identifies sports and club teams as an area in which students need more training. Military officials say they are working on ways to encourage students to take action when they see or hear of sexual assault or harassment.
   The Associated Press obtained the report ahead of its release.

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) — With a single star studded on each shoulder of his immaculate dress blues, Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair waited his turn to go through the metal detectors at the federal courthouse at Fort Bragg, just like everyone else.

The 51-year-old general is believed to be the highest-ranking U.S. Army officer ever charged with sexual assault.

Sinclair has pleaded not guilty to eight criminal charges including forcible sodomy, indecent acts and violating orders. His court-martial is scheduled to begin March 3.

While Sinclair denies he physically forced a female captain to perform oral sex, the married father concedes he carried on a three-year extramarital affair with the junior officer. The case comes as the Pentagon is already grappling with a string of embarrassing revelations involving sexual misconduct within the ranks.

Missouri man admits to child porn charges

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - A 46-year-old convicted sex offender accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting two southeast Missouri girls has pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Jeffrey D. Shelton, of Poplar Bluff, pleaded guilty Wednesday to production, attempted production and possession of child pornography. Sentencing is July 15.

 Prosecutors say Shelton abducted a 5-year-old child in October 2012 and produced videos of the child engaged in sexual conduct at his Butler County home. Authorities also said Shelton's cellphone contained other visual depictions of another 10-year-old child engaged in sexual activity.

Shelton spent more than 20 years in prison for kidnapping and sexually assaulting three children in Texas in the early 1990s.
