A Navy officer will face a court-martial next week in Washington on charges that he raped a civilian co-worker last June, the Navy said Thursday. Lt. Cmdr. Donald Clause, 34, has been charged with rape, adultery, sexual harassment and conduct unbecoming an officer, said Lt. Karl Johnson, a spokesman for the Naval District Washington. The military trial will take place at the Washington Navy Yard. If convicted, Clause could be dismissed from the Navy, jailed, fined and forced to forfeit pay.

A 26-year-old medical student alleged in a sworn statement released Tuesday that "a ferocious, almost animal-like" William Kennedy Smith raped her three years ago in Washington after taking her to his home from a picnic where she had become "incredibly drunk." In a separate sworn statement, a former girlfriend of Smith's cousin, Matthew Maxwell (Max) Kennedy, said that she twice fought Smith off after he attacked her in 1983 in a guest bedroom of his family's Manhattan home.
