A court-martial is being held for a Coast Guard fireman charged with sexually assaulting a fellow Coast Guard petty officer.
Prosecutors say the attack occurred Jan. 3, 2011, in Valdez.
The woman took the stand Tuesday in Juneau’s federal building to say she remembers little about what occurred because she had consumed alcohol.
Prosecutors say the woman was sexually attacked on the bathroom floor of a local bar and again attacked on the stairwell of her apartment. Much of their case hinges on eyewitness accounts from the woman’s two co-workers.
Twenty-three-year-old Roque Trevino’s lawyers maintain the sex was consensual.
Trevino is charged with aggravated sexual assault and abusive sexual contact.
If convicted, he faces a maximum 67 years.
