Edmond Aruffo, a retired Navy officer, entered a guilty plea on Thursday as part of a bribery scheme that involved Navy ships in the Asia-Pacific region, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Aruffo retired in 2007 as a lieutenant commander and he is the fourth defendant in the scheme to plead guilty in federal court.

United States Attorney Laura Duffy said Aruffo “traded integrity and honesty for greed and profit.”

The other three who have pled guilty and await sentencing include former Naval Criminal Investigative Service special agent John Beliveau, Petty Officer 1st-class Daniel Layug, and Glenn Defense Marine Asia executive Alex Wisidagama.

According to prosecutors, the scheme cost taxpayers some $20 million for bills that were padded or listed services that never occurred.

Those involved who pled not guilty and await trial include Navy Cmdr. Michael Vannak Khem Misiewicz, Cmdr. Jose Luis Sanchez, and Leonard Glenn Francis, who is the owner of Singapore-based Glenn Defense Marine Asia.

Francis has been accused of bribing the Navy personnel with electronics, cash, prostitutes and travel accommodations in exchange for classified information about Navy ships movement and an investigation of Francis’ company.

Prosecutors said that with the inside information, Glenn Defense Marine Asia was able to acquire contracts to service Navy ships.
