Navy admiral sentenced to 18 months in prison

A U.S. Navy rear admiral convicted of accepting bribes is now facing an 18 month prison sentence. He admitted to lying to federal agents about receiving gifts from Malaysian defense contractor “Fat Leonard.”

Robert Gilbeau is the first active duty admiral ever convicted of a federal crime. He managed to lessen his sentence by agreeing to pay $50,000 in restitution as well as a $100,000 fine.

Twenty Navy officials are caught up in the scandal. Ten have already pleaded guilty and 10 cases are still pending.
