Submarine sailor owns up to video
MAYPORT NAVAL STATION, FLORIDA- A sailor accused of videotaping female officers in a shower area aboard a U.S. Navy submarine pleaded guilty and was sentenced to ten months in the brig.
Petty Officer 2nd Class Ryan Secrest admits he made the video and lied to investigators. Secrest is one of seven sailors charged.
The women in the videos are among the first to serve on submarines and this case has disrupted their integration into the submarine service.
Prosecutors say Secrest used the camera on his cell phone to take the video of the female officers in various stage of undress in 2014. In addition to jail time, Secrest also got a reduction in rank and a bad conduct discharge.
He's the sixth tried in the case and the fifth found guilty.
