Senate Committee Investigates Sexual Assaults In U.S. Military

Congress holds another hearing Tuesday on ways to reduce sexual assault in the military.

Congress wants to see more offenders go to jail or at least get kicked out of the service. But in fact there's little evidence that strategy will actually reduce the number of assaults.
