US Department of Justice announced that US Navy officer Todd Malaki pleaded guilty before a Magistrate Judge on Wednesday to trading classified military information for cash.
“A lieutenant commander in the US Navy pleaded guilty to bribery charges in federal court today, admitting that he accepted cash, hotel expenses and the services of a prostitute in return for providing classified US Navy ship schedules and other internal Navy information to an executive of a defense contracting firm,” the statement said.
The Justice Department explained that Malaki made the trade while working for the US Navy’s Seventh Fleet in 2006.
Malaki provided classified US Navy ship schedules to the former president of Glenn Defense Marine Asia (GDMA) company that provided services to the US Navy, according to the Justice Department. In addition, Malaki provided invoicing information about GDMA’s competitors.
