Navy Times reports on the verdict and sentencing in the court-martial of the Senior Chief Master-at-Arms from the USS GHWB:
The former top cop on the carrier George H.W. Bush was busted from senior chief to petty officer third class and sentenced to 179 days’ confinement late Friday night by a military jury that earlier convicted him on four charges of cruelty and maltreatment of junior sailors he supervised from 2008-2010.
The panel, which began its deliberations late in the day on Apr. 7 and returned its verdicts late Friday afternoon, also found Senior Chief Master-at-Arms (SW) Kevin Curtis guilty on one count of disrespect toward a commissioned officer and one count of soliciting a monetary loan from a subordinate, . . . Curtis earlier skirted a much harsher sentence when the six-member panel, which included four enlisted members, cleared him on the 26 other charges he faced during a week-long general court-martial at Norfolk Naval Station.
