A former U.S. Navy chief petty officer involved in the wide-ranging “Fat Leonard” bribery scandal was sentenced Friday in San Diego to 27 months in federal prison.
Brooks Alonzo Parks, 48, of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, was one of 34 defendants charged in the scheme, which involved the bribery of Navy officials in exchange for helping Leonard Glenn “Fat Leonard” Francis and his Singapore-based ship husbanding company, Glenn Defense Marine Asia, obtain classified military information to gain an edge over GDMA’s competitors.
Parks was also ordered to pay $25,405.76 in restitution in connection with his guilty plea to a count of conspiracy to commit bribery.
