PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) - A high-ranking Navy enlisted man has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison after pleading guilty to raping a teenage girl and trying to have sex with another.
The Kitsap Sun reports that Kitsap County Superior Court Judge Anna Laurie imposed the 136-month sentence Friday on 39-year-old Daniel C. Jones of Central Kitsap. Jones is a Navy master chief, the highest enlisted rank in that service. He had served as chief of boat for the blue crew of the Bangor-based Trident submarine USS Louisiana.
Jones pleaded guilty in May to two counts of second-degree child rape and one count of communication with a minor for immoral purposes.
