U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander Todd Dale Malaki was sentenced to 40 months in prison and pay a $15,000 fine and $15,000 in restitution for accepting bribes from foreign defense contractor Glenn Defense Marine Asia (GDMA) in exchange for classified U.S. Navy ship and submarine schedules and other internal Navy information.  While he was working as a supply officer for the U.S. Navy’s Seventh Fleet, Malaki began a corrupt relationship with Leonard Glenn Francis, the former president and CEO of GDMA, a company that provided port services to U.S. Navy ships and submarines throughout the Pacific.  As part of the scheme, Malaki provided Francis with classified U.S. Navy ship schedules and proprietary invoicing information about GDMA’s competitors in exchange for luxury hotel stays in Singapore, Hong Kong and the island of Tonga, as well as envelopes of cash, entertainment expenses and the services of a prostitute.  To date, 10 individuals have been charged in connection with this scheme.  DOJ  Just a day earlier, U.S. Navy Commander Michael Vannak Khem Misiewicz pleaded guilty to participating in the same scheme.  DOJ
