WASHINGTON (AP) -- Jury selection is scheduled to begin in the case of a former U.S. Naval Academy football player accused of sexually assaulting a classmate during an off-campus party.

   Jury selection for the court-martial of Joshua Tate of Nashville, begins Friday in Washington. Tate is charged with aggravated sexual assault and lying to investigators.

   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 is the only one who remains charged in the case.

   Opening statements are planned for Monday.
