NCIS agent pleads guilty in bribery scandal, may get 20-year sentence

SAN DIEGO — A Naval Criminal Investigative Service senior agent pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of bribery in a contracting scandal involving U.S. ships in the Asia-Pacific region.

The two counts could lead to a sentence of 20 years in prison.

John Bertrand Beliveau, 44, pleaded guilty to leaking confidential documents to Leonard Glenn Francis, a Singapore-based businessman, about a fraud investigation involving Francis that began in 2010, and then tutoring him on how to avoid giving incriminating statements.

Although nothing would bar the judge from sentencing Beliveau to the maximum 20 years, the guilty plea could be seen as an acceptance of responsibility and a reason for leniency.

“I’m here to do the right thing,” Beliveau told reporters before he entered the federal courthouse in downtown San Diego.

Beliveau is set to be sentenced March 7 by U.S. District Court Judge Janis Sammartino.

Beliveau’s actions “tragically tarnished his NCIS badge,” said NCIS Director Andrew Traver.

“This is an audacious violation of law for a decorated federal agent who valued personal pleasure over loyalty to his colleagues,” said U.S. Atty. Laura Duffy.
