Prosecutors Want 10 Years for Navy Kickback Scheme

Posted:

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP)- Federal prosecutors in Rhode Island have asked a judge for a more than 10-year sentence for the mastermind of a kickback scheme that lasted 15 years and cost the U.S. Navy millions of dollars.

They asked U.S. District Court Judge Mary Lisi on Thursday to sentence Ralph M. Mariano to 10 years and one month for the $18 million scheme, the maximum under sentencing guidelines. They say he failed to take responsibility for his crimes, tarnished the Navy, and ruined lives.

Mariano, a civilian employee of the Navy, pleaded guilty to conspiracy, theft of government property and tax evasion. He is one of six people convicted in the case.

Prosecutors say Mariano spent the money on gambling vacations and $100,000 worth of luxury cigars, among other things.

Sentencing is next week.
