CMDR Jay Wylie caught a big break Friday when his 10-year prison sentence for rape and sexual assault was reduced to just 42 months behind bars. The deal was hammered out in a plea bargain at Naval Base, San Diego.

The former commanding officer of the destroyer Momsen pleaded guilty to some of the charges against him, but avoided going to prison for life if he'd been convicted of sodomy and other offences.

Wylie was sentenced to 10 years behind bars by military judge CAPT Carole Gaasch, but due to the plea bargain, the Navy officer will serve less than half the time.

BLAMES SEX ASSAULTS ON BOOZE PROBLEM

The 40 year-old disgraced commander - one of 21 so far this year to be cashiered by the Navy - blamed his problems on booze. Expressing "remorse" for his actions, he said it would never have happened if he hadn't had a serious drinking problem.

In addition to the incarceration, Wylie is dismissed from the Navy and loses all pay and allowances. He'd served 19 years in uniform. His wife and children, however, innocent in this case, will receive some financial help while the sex abuser is locked up.

As soon as the sentence was announced, Wylie was led away in handcuffs to begin serving time at the Marine Corps Brig at Miramar MCAS.
