The Pentagon’s top military officials will face furious lawmakers on Tuesday regarding the rise of sexual assaults in the U.S. military. Sexual assaults go largely unreported because those targeted are often afraid to report the crime. ABC reports that Congress is considering several options, including setting up a system where victims of sexual assault could report directly to military prosecutors. This investigation comes after several high profile cases that have come to light in recent months.
