According to The Huffington Post, a senior Navy criminal investigator will plead guilty to “bribery charges for accepting prostitution services and expensive trips in exchange for providing information and advice to an Asian defense contractor at the center of a multimillion-dollar fraud probe,” the Navy official’s lawyer said Thursday.

John Beliveau has been accused of “collecting information on a U.S. investigation for the chief executive officer of a Singapore-based company that allegedly provided travel expenses and prostitutes to a Navy commander.”

As of September, Beliveau, Navy Commander Michael Misiewicz and Leonard Glenn Francis, head of Glenn Defense Marine (Asia), a ship services company, were charged in federal court. Different news sites have noted along with prosecutors on the case, that Navy officials were co-conspiring with Leonard Glenn Francis, the Malaysian defense contractor who was arrested in San Diego just this past September.

According to authorities, Leonard Glenn Francis, the 49-year-old CEO of Singapore-based Glenn Defense Marine Asia Ltd., or GDMA, offered bribes to Navy officers in exchange for confidential information—including ship routes—that he used to overbill the Navy for port services in Asia. Attorney Jan Ronis noted that John Beliveau II will plead guilty to bribery and conspiracy in federal court on Tuesday.
