Naval Academy To Hear Rape Case
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A hearing will be held at the U.S. Naval Academy to determine whether a midshipman will be court-martialed.
Patrick Edmond is accused of raping a female midshipman in October in the school’s dormitory. Following an investigation by the Naval Criminal Intelligence Service, he was charged last month with rape and issuing a false statement.
Edmond is 19 and from Jackson, Miss.
A proceeding called an Article 32 hearing will be held Monday at the academy to determine if Edmond will face a general court martial.
