Conn. Navy sailor gets 3 months for rape

Posted: Updated:

GROTON, Conn. (AP) - A Navy sailor convicted of raping a female colleague in March at his home near the Naval Submarine Base in Groton has been sentenced to three months of confinement and a bad conduct discharge from the service.

The Day of New London reports 26-year-old Jeramie Martin Hutchinson of Sebastopol, Calif., was sentenced by a military jury. Hutchinson also will be required to register as a sex offender.

A military jury found him guilty of rape Wednesday. Hutchison was acquitted of 2 other counts of sexual assault.

Authorities say Hutchinson met the 22-year-old victim online two years ago and they met in person earlier this year after she was assigned to Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island.

Hutchinson's defense pointed to evidence that the encounter was consensual.
