Academy Sexual Assault Case Delayed by Snow

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP)- The military trial of a former U.S. Naval Academy football player accused of sexually assaulting a classmate has been delayed by winter weather.

Lawyers are now expected to give opening statements Tuesday in the court-martial of Joshua Tate of Nashville, Tenn.

Prosecutors initially accused Tate and two other students of sexually assaulting a female student during a 2012 party at an off-campus house in Annapolis, Md. The woman said she didn't remember being assaulted after a night of heavy drinking but heard from others she had had sex with multiple partners at the party. Tate faces charges of aggravated sexual assault and lying to investigators. He is now the only one charged in the case.

The woman he's accused of assaulting could testify. The Associated Press does not generally identify alleged victims of sexual assault.
