Lawyers will continue questioning potential jurors tomorrow in the case of an Air Force cadet accused of rape.

Both sides spent Friday questioning people who could decide the fate of Benjamin Kuster.

He's accused of sexually assaulting a female cadet during a diving club trip to New Mexico a year ago. He says it's possible he mistook the alleged victim for his girlfriend because he had been drinking heavily. They were all staying in the same hotel room.

The defense has delayed making its case for moving the trial until after a jury is seated. They hope to show that widespread publicity of the academy's sex assault scandal has tainted the jury pool.
