Navy officer pleads guilty to taking bribes from contractor

A U.S. Navy petty officer pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bribery in connection with his acceptance of more than $10,000 in cash, consumer electronics and travel expenses in exchange for classified information, U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy said in a statement Tuesday.

Dan Layug admitted to swapping the information for the bribes from Singapore-based Glenn Defense Marine Asia, which provided port services to U.S. Navy ships in the Asia-Pacific region, Duffy said.

He’s the sixth person charged in the scheme and third to plead guilty, Duffy said.
