Midshipmen Tra'ves Bush, Eric Graham and Josh Tate may face a court-martial on charges that they sexually assaulted a female midshipman.

A witness in the hearing of three former U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen accused sexual assault says the victim appeared drunk on the night of the alleged assault.

Midshipman Christa Kamon, a friend of the victim, testified Monday at a hearing to help determine whether the three students will be court-martialed in the sexual assault case. Kamon claimed she saw the woamn fall down while dancing at an alcohol-fueled, off-campus toga party in Annapolis, Md., in April 2012. Kamon also testified her friend was slurring her speech. Defense attorneys questioned her recollection.

The unidentified woman, the potential plantiff in the case, testified she has no memory of being assaulted by any of the three midshipmen who are accused in the case.

The Article 32 hearing began last Tuesday. When it ends, the presiding investigative officer will make recommendations about whether the men should be court-martialed.
