Military Sexual Assault

FILE - In this June 4, 2013, file photo, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich. asks a question of a witness during a hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington on legislation regarding sexual assaults in the military. Siding with the Pentagon's top brass, the Senate Armed Services Committee approved legislation Wednesday, June 12, 2013, to keep commanders involved in deciding whether to prosecute sexual assault cases, rejecting an aggressive plan to stem sex-related crimes in the armed forces by overhauling the military justice system. By a vote of 17-9, the committee passed a bill crafted by its chairman, Levin, designed to increase pressure on senior commanders to prosecute sexual assault cases by requiring a top-level review if they fail to do so.(AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)
