A second cadet accused of sexual misconduct will begin his Article 32 hearing Monday.

Cadet 1st Class Kyle A. Cressy faces charges of aggravated sexual assault. His affidavit states that around May 28, 2011, he engaged in sexual acts, including intercourse, with a "substantially incapacitated" woman.

Cadet 2nd Class Stephan H. Claxton, also facing sexual misconduct allegations, had his hearing last week. Read more here. 11 News has learned that Cressy and Claxton continued to attend class after being charged.

An Article 32 hearing is the military equivalent of a grand jury proceeding. The academy's Superintendent Lt. General Mike Gould will decide if the cases will go to trial.
