The U.S. Naval Academy’s head is rejecting suggestions that political pressure influenced him in pursuing sexual assault charges against a football player at the school.
An investigative officer who presided at a hearing to help decide whether three midshipmen should face court-martial over a sexual assault allegation has forwarded his recommendations to the school’s superintendent, the academy’s spokesman said Monday.
The superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy says the school has plans to create a Navy football hall of fame.
