Navy commander pleads guilty to rape, sex assault of 2 female officers By The Associated Press

SAN DIEGO (AP) ' A Navy ship commander has pleaded guilty to sexual assault and rape of two female sailors in his command and a military judge has ordered his dismissal and sentenced him to more than three years confinement.

In a release Friday, Navy spokeswoman Sheila Murray says Cmdr. Jay Wylie was sentenced to 10 years but will serve 42 months as part of a plea agreement.

During the San Diego hearing, the judge also ordered that Wylie forfeit future benefits.



He as immediately sent to the brig at Miramar Marine Corps Air Station.

Lawyer Jeremiah Sullivan says his client Wylie was extremely remorseful.

Sullivan says the dismissal case will be appealed, but only because all dismissal cases automatically go through an appeals process.
