AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) — A third-year cadet at the U.S. Air Force Academy has been found not guilty of sexual assault.

The academy says Cadet 2nd Class Michael T. Crotts was acquitted Friday by a panel of eight officers who heard testimony and reviewed evidence at his court-martial.

He had been accused of assaulting a woman in March or April 2017.
