WASHINGTON (AP) -- The military trial of a former U.S. Naval Academy football player accused of sexually assaulting a classmate is scheduled to begin after a daylong weather delay.
Lawyers are expected to give opening statements Tuesday in the court-martial of Joshua Tate of Nashville, Tenn. Opening statements had been scheduled for Monday but were delayed because of snow.
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.
