WASHINGTON, March 20 (Reuters) - A U.S. military judge on Thursday found a former Naval Academy football player not guilty on a charge of sexually assaulting a female midshipman in 2012 when she was drunk.

Judge Marine Colonel Daniel Daugherty said he would refer a charge of making false official statements to the Naval Academy superintendent for discipline under the school's honor system. (Reporting by Tom Ramstack; Editing by Scott Malone)
