Navy investigator admits part in multi-million dollar fraud

Forty-four-year-old high-ranking Navy investigator John Beliveau II is set to plead guilty to bribery charges for taking expensive trips and being involved in prostitution services to trade information and advice to an Asian defense contractor at the heart of a multi-million dollar fraud investigation, the Navy officer’s attorney revealed on Thursday, December 12.

His attorney said Beliveau will plead guilty to bribery and conspiracy to commit bribery on Tuesday, December 17 in a federal court in San Diego. Beliveau is facing a maximum sentence of 20 years.

Beliveau, a supervisor with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, is one among three Navy officers who have been taken into custody regarding the case.

According to law enforcement agents, 49-year-old CEO of Singapore-based Glenn Defense Marine Asia Ltd. Leonard Glenn Francis bribed Navy officials to tell him confidential information, which included ship routes, that he utilized in order to charge the Navy more for port services in Asia.
