Civilian Navy manager jailed 8 years for taking bribes

Kenny E. Toy, the former Afloat Programs Manager at the U.S. Navy Military Sealift Command, was sentenced Tuesday by a federal court in Virginia to serve 96 months in prison for taking bribes.

Toy pleaded guilty in February to a criminal information charging him with one count of bribery.  

Toy worked for the Military Sealift Command, the leading provider of transportation for the U.S. Navy. In 2004, he joined a bribery conspiracy that spanned five years.

At his plea hearing, Toy said he took monthly cash bribes of approximately $3,000, as well as a flat screen television and a paid vacation, from co-conspirators Dwayne A. Hardman, Roderic J. Smith, Michael P. McPhail and Adam C. White. They all worked at a company that had contracts from the government.

Toy was also ordered to forfeit $100,000.

Earlier this month, Hardman was also sentenced to 96 months in prison and ordered to forfeit $144,000.

White, a part owner of one of Hardman’s companies, was sentenced to 24 months in prison.

Hardman pleaded guilty in February to a criminal information charging him with bribery. White pleaded guilty in April.

McPahil pleaded guilty in February to accepting bribes from Hardman, White and others.

A grand jury indicted Miserendino and Miller in May. They're charged with conspiracy and bribery.

Their trial is set for September 30 this year.

The DOJ's July 29 press release is here.
