WEST POINT, N.Y. — A U.S. Military Academy cadet has been found of guilty of sexually assaulting a female classmate during field training.
He was found guilty by a panel of six members of West Point's faculty and staff after a court-martial that began Monday.
The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports that his accuser testified the assault happened after a day of field training last summer at Camp Buckner on West Point's grounds 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of New York City.
Whisenhunt pleaded not guilty to the charges. He was in the class of 2019.
Defense lawyers contended any sexual contact between the two was consensual.
