NORFOLK, VA. — A former Coast Guard transportation officer will spend more than seven years in prison for wire fraud and taking bribes.
A federal judge in Norfolk sentenced Nathan Allen Dunn, 30, of Brookwood, Ala., Wednesday to seven years and three months in prison. He also must pay nearly $780,000 in restitution to the federal government.
Dunn pleaded guilty to the charges in January.
Dunn was a transportation officer from October 2009 to November 2011 at the Surface Forces Logistics Center in Norfolk, where he was in charge of coordinating the shipment of large freight between Coast Guard bases. Prosecutors say Dunn conspired to award overpriced or fake shipment contracts to 12 companies owned by another man in exchange for bribery payments and kickbacks from the profits.
That man, Huffman Monk, also of Brookwood, Ala., already was sentenced to more than five years in prison and ordered to pay a fine of $15,000 and $780,000 in restitution.
