US Navy agent to plead guilty in corruption case: report
WASHINGTON (AFP) - A senior US law enforcement agent has provided a major breakthrough in a Navy corruption scandal by agreeing to plead guilty to taking bribes, The Washington Post reported on Thursday.
The case has already implicated half a dozen navy officers and could taint more.
John B. Beliveau II, a supervisory special agent with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, will enter a guilty plea next week in San Diego, the Post said, quoting court records and his attorney.
Beliveau was arrested in September and charged with helping Singapore-based Navy contractor Glenn Defence Marine Asia dodge multiple criminal investigations by leaking inside information about NCIS probes in exchange for prostitutes, cash and other favors.
