Sex cases increase for cadets
– Incidence of sexual assault in US military academies rose again last year, the Pentagon said, despite efforts to combat the problem.
During the 2018-2019 school year, there were 149 sexual assaults officially reported at three military academies – where students prepare for futures as military officers – compared to 117 during the previous school year, an increase of more than 25%.
It only covered sexual assault cases reported, which the Pentagon says makes it difficult to determine if the rise is due to better reporting. – AFP
