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."
