SAN DIEGO — A federal judge in San Diego has sentenced a Navy captain who oversaw operations in the U.S. Pacific Fleet to 46 months in prison for providing classified information to a Malaysian defense contractor in exchange for luxury hotel stays and the services of prostitutes.
Capt. Daniel Dusek is the highest-ranking officer to be charged in one of the military's worst bribery scandals.
Also Friday, U.S. District Judge Janis L. Sammartino ordered Dusek to pay a $70,000 fine for giving ship and submarine schedules to help Leonard Glenn Francis carry out a scheme in which his company, Glenn Defense Marine Asia Ltd., or GDMA, overbilled the maritime branch by more than $34 million.
Dusek told the court he will never forgive himself for his actions that spanned a seven-month period.
