Former Navy SEAL sentenced to prison for investment scheme

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 05/07/2015 - 09:36
By Marty Graham SAN DIEGO (Reuters) - A former U.S. Navy SEAL who pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a scheme to defraud a dozen people out of nearly $1.2 million was sentenced on Wednesday to more than six years in prison. Jason Mullaney, who served in the Navy from 1993 to 2003 and spent much of his career on SEAL Team Five based in Coronado, California, pleaded guilty in September in San Diego Superior Court to three counts of grand theft and one count of securities fraud. Mullaney, 43, later sought to withdraw that plea, made as part of an agreement with prosecutors, but was rejected by a judge. Prosecutors say Mullaney, who had a California real estate license, bought and sold homes for clients – many of whom came from his Navy contacts.
