Request to separate 3 cases in Naval Academy sexual assault case is denied

WASHINGTON — Two U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen who are accused of sexually assaulting a student have been denied requests to separate their cases from a joint proceeding.

Attorneys for midshipmen Tra’ves Bush and Eric Graham said during a military hearing today that their requests had been denied by academy officials.

Bush, Graham and midshipman Josh Tate are attending a hearing to determine whether they will face a court-martial.

Bush’s lawyers have already cross-examined the alleged victim.

Cross-examination by Graham’s lawyers continued today.

Lawyers for Tate haven’t yet had a chance to cross examiner her. The Article 32 hearing began Tuesday.

The three former Navy football players are charged with sexually assaulting the student at an off-campus party in April 2012.

She’s now a senior at the academy and says she doesn’t remember having sex with the men.
