Jury Recommends No Penalty for Midshipman
A former U.S. Naval Academy quarterback acquitted of raping a female midshipman but convicted of two lesser charges should not face any punishment, a military jury recommended.
Lamar S. Owens Jr. could have received anything from a written reprimand to dismissal on the charges of conduct unbecoming an officer and disobeying a lawful order. Prosecutors recommended a two-year sentence.
