NEW LONDON, Conn. — The U.S. Coast Guard says there were five reports of sexual assault or other sexual offenses at its service academy in Connecticut in the 2015-2016 school year.
That's an increase over the previous year, when there were four reports. There were eight reports in the 2013-2014 school year.
Congress receives an annual report on sexual harassment and violence at the New London-based academy. The academy provided it to The Associated Press on Friday.
Four of the reported offenses were prosecuted. The report says there was insufficient evidence in one case.
In a survey, fewer cadets reported experiencing unwanted sexual contact.
The academy is developing additional training.
