Midshipman Found Guilty Of Unlawful Entry

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A U.S. Naval Academy spokesman says a midshipman has been found guilty of unlawful entry, but a military jury acquitted him of charges of abusive sexual contact and burglary.

The spokesman, Cmdr. John Schofield, said Friday a jury sentenced Midshipman Patrick Slack to 60 days of restriction to the academy’s campus.

Slack, a senior who did not graduate in May because of the case, was accused of entering a student’s room and touching her breast.

The superintendent will review the record of trial and decide on the final disposition of the case. The student faces a range of possible sanctions, including expulsion.

A separate case involving allegations that three football players raped a student has moved ahead to Article 32 hearings to determine whether there is evidence for a court-marital.
