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.
 
The woman said she didn't remember being sexually assaulted after a night of heavy drinking but heard from others she had had sex with multiple partners at the party. Tate was the only one brought to court-martial, the military's equivalent of a trial.
 
The other students no longer face charges.
