Midshipman Rape Case Referred To Court-Martial

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy has referred the case of a midshipman accused of rape to court-martial.

Patrick Edmond, 19, is accused of raping a female midshipman in October in the school’s dormitory. He has been charged with rape, sodomy and issuing a false statement.

Edmond, of Jackson, Miss., was charged in March after an investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

Cmdr. Joe Carpenter, an academy spokesman, says the date of the court-martial has not been set.
