Academy Plan Means No Jail in Assault Case

May 08, 2006|From Times Wire Reports

The Naval Academy is preparing to prosecute a midshipman accused of indecent assault with a rarely used form of court-martial that doesn't seek jail time but might make it easier to win a conviction.

Senior and former football player Kenny Ray Morrison will face a special court-martial in July, the Baltimore Sun reported.

If found guilty, offenders are not imprisoned, but they have a federal conviction on their record.

Morrison is accused of trying to pressure a drunken female midshipman into sex Feb. 4 at a Washington hotel, according to documents.
