ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — A Coast Guardsman formerly based in San Francisco has been sentenced to five years in military prison after pleading guilty to abusive sexual contact, assault and other charges.

The Coast Guard said Petty Officer First Class Christopher S. Molloy admitted at his court-martial to 30 charges. The health services technician was accused of inappropriate sexual contact with about a dozen female Coast Guard members during wellness exams.

The 31-year-old Molloy will also be dishonorably discharged, and required to register as a sex offender.

A court-martial panel had recommended a 15-year sentence, but the presiding judge suspended 10 of those years as part of the plea deal.

However, if he fails to comply with terms of the deal or violate conditions of his confinement he'll have to serve the 15-year term.
