ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A U.S. Naval Academy officer is deciding whether a midshipman accused of raping another midshipman should be court-martialed, following a day-long hearing punctuated by the victim’s testimony. 

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, sodomy and issuing a false statement. 

Edmond is 19 and from Jackson, Miss. 

A proceeding called an Article 32 hearing was held Monday at the academy to determine if Edmond will face a general court-martial.
