Top US navy officer jailed in massive bribery scandal


LOS ANGELES: A top US Navy officer was sentenced to 46 months in prison on Friday for giving classified information to a Malaysian contractor in exchange for prostitutes and lavish gifts. Captain Daniel Dusek, the highest-ranking officer charged in a massive navy bribery scandal, was also ordered to pay a $70,000 fine and $30,000 in restitution to the navy. “It’s truly unimaginable to the court that someone in your position with the United States Navy would sell out based on what was provided to you—hotel rooms, entertainment and the services of prostitutes,” US District Judge Janis Sammartino said during the sentencing in San Diego, California. Dusek, 49, who pleaded guilty in January 2015 to conspiracy to commit bribery, was among several current and former naval officers charged in the scandal that involved tens of millions of dollars in bribes.
