Navy Academy: Charges Dropped in Sex Assault Case

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A lawyer for one of two U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen charged in a sexual assault case says all charges against his client are being dropped.

Chip Herrington represents Midshipman Eric Graham of Eight Mile, Ala., and he says prosecutors gave him the news Friday. Graham had faced charges of abusive sexual contact and making a false statement.

Prosecutors initially accused three midshipmen of sexually assaulting a female classmate in 2012 at an off-campus house in Annapolis. The woman said she didn't remember being sexually assaulted after a night of heavy drinking but heard from others she had had sex with multiple partners at a party.

The men were all football players at the academy at the time of the alleged assault.

The academy didn't immediately confirm whether charges have been dropped.
