WASHINGTON (AP) - A military judge has found a former U.S. Naval Academy football player not guilty of a sexual assault charge.
The judge on Friday acquitted Joshua Tate of Nashville, Tenn., of one count of aggravated sexual assault.
Tate chose to be tried by a judge rather than a military jury.
Prosecutors initially accused Tate and two other students of sexually assaulting a female student during a 2012 party at an off-campus house in Annapolis, Md., where the school is located.
