Navy Corruption Scandal Results In Prison Time For Highest-Ranking Officer Yet

A Navy captain has been sentenced to nearly four years in prison for his involvement in a bribery scandal.

Capt. Daniel Dusek, the former deputy director of operations for the Navy's 7th Fleet, pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy to commit bribery, admitting he traded classified information for luxury gifts and access to prostitutes. He was sentenced to 46 months on Friday.

He's the highest-ranking officer who has faced charges for his involvement in the scandal. Two admirals had theiraccess to classified material suspended several years ago, over alleged connections to the scandal. To this day, both admirals — one of whom is the Navy's intelligence chief — are blocked from viewing classified documents.

The scandal in question centers on foreign defense contractor Leonard Glenn Francis, or "Fat Leonard."

Another conviction for mishandling of significantly less classified information than the HildaBeast.

No reduction in rank for Captain Dusek? Don't those convicted of felonies in the military get reduced in rank to E-1 and then sent to do their time?

Five more years of undetected crime and he could have retired at around $8000 per month for the rest of his life, plus benefits. And gotten a second job for a contractor for another $150K per year, minimum plus benefits.
