A 42-year-old Navy chaplain has been sentenced for a range of sexual crimes committed at the Quantico Marine base and the Naval Academy. In one episode, Lt. Cmdr. John Thomas Matthew Lee forced oral sex on a 20-year-old midshipman. So much for moral superiority.

Lee, who is HIV-positive, had 10 years knocked off his sentence, but he’ll have to provide the names of his sexual partners over the last four years.
