"The few, the proud . . . a pervert."
What happened? The vast majority of Marine officers we have known and served with are decent, honorable men. But former Capt. Michael Thomas Dowling, no stranger at the Pentagon, is one of those sickos who need to be kept behind bars for a very long time.
Dowling has pleaded guilty in Virginia to attempted indecent liberties, producing child pornography, using a computer to promote sex from a minor, and criminal solicitation.
His plea bargain with prosecutors at Stafford, Va. Circuit Court means he will get a minimum of ten years behind bars when he is sentenced in October.
SICK SEXUAL DESIRES
Investigators told MilitaryCorruption.com the one-time Pentagon contractor's twisted sexual tastes came to their attention when a woman he'd befriended told cops the 36 year-old divorced dad of two tried to get her to "set up a sex session" with the daycare worker's 7 year-old son.
She said Dowling begged her to let him bang her in front of the youngster and then watch as she performed a sex act on the little boy.
When Dowling showed up at a Stafford motel, expecting fun and games, instead he was tackled by waiting cops and hauled off to jail.
That's where the ex-captain has called "home" since he was arrested Dec. 13, 2012. The county jailhouse.
NOW HE'S "SEPARATED"
Here's an irony.
Capt. Dowling used to work at Quantico. His job - in the Separation and Retirement Branch of Marine Corps Headquarters.
Now he's the one to get the fast shuffled out the door. The Corps wants to forget him as soon as possible.
