WASHINGTON (AP) -- Prosecutors and three separate legal defense teams will gather for the resumption of a hearing to determine whether three Naval Academy midshipmen will be court-martialed over sexual assault allegations.

The hearing resumes Saturday in the case of three former Navy football players who are accused of sexually assaulting a midshipman at an off-campus party last year.

The alleged victim is now a senior at the academy. During three days of testimony in open court, she has said she doesn't remember being assaulted by any of the students. She has testified she only learned of the allegations from others afterward.

Defense attorneys have been underscoring the woman's spotty memory from drinking too much.
