Navy reserve officer charged with fraud and bribery in Afghan visa case


Recommended Posts

NAPLES, Italy — A U.S. Navy Reserve commander living in Naples faces bribery and fraud charges after federal prosecutors said he admitted to writing fake recommendation letters for Afghan nationals seeking visas to live in America.

Cmdr. Jeromy Pittmann, 53, of Pensacola, Fla., appeared in a New Hampshire U.S. district court on Friday, the Justice Department said in a statement that day.

If convicted, Pittmann faces up to 20 years in prison.
