ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The case of three former U.S. Naval Academy football players accused of sexually assaulting a female midshipman at a crowded off-campus house is bringing fresh criticism and calls for greater accountability on academy leaders.
As the entire military faces scrutiny about how sexual assault cases are handled, some are focusing on the training ground for future military leaders as a natural starting point for addressing problem.
Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., wants to create a commission, partly to examine how well superintendents are addressing sexual assault.
The academy, meanwhile, is putting a greater emphasis on training to prevent sexual assault. It also has sent letters to people who open their homes to midshipmen to help the school stop students from renting or leasing off-campus homes.
WASHINGTON (AP) — 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.

Wilder is being held in the St. Louis County jail on a $50,000 cash-only bond.

NEW YORK (AP) — Sexual assault occurs in many settings, and the perpetrators come from every part of U.S. society.
Yet as recent incidents and reports make clear, it's a particularly intractable problem in the military, with its enduring macho culture and unique legal system.
Advocates for change say one significant factor is the perception by many victims in the military that they lack the recourses available in the civilian world to bring assailants to justice.
The military insists it takes the problem seriously and has implemented numerous policies and programs to reduce the assaults.
But the problem persists.
A recent Pentagon report estimates that 26,000 service members were sexually assaulted last year, up from 19,000 in 2011. Victims reported 3,374 incidents in 2012, and there were convictions in 238 of those cases.
