USNA Sexual Assault Hearing Concludes

Questioning has concluded in a military hearing that will determine whether three male U.S. Naval Academy students will face a court-martial for the alleged sexual assault of a female classmate. The accused Midshipmen, all former Navy football players, declined to speak Tuesday after their accuser spent five days testifying. The case is being closely watched by many as the Pentagon, Congress and the Obama administration work to address the broader issue of sexual assaults in the military. We find out what happened at the hearing and what comes next.
