NORFOLK (Tribune News Service) — A Navy captain will spend a month in prison after pleading guilty Tuesday to charges of downloading pornography on his work computer at Norfolk Naval Station.

A military judge sentenced Capt. Richard Frey to 30 days in confinement and forfeiture of $18,000 in pay over the next year. He was taken to the Naval Consolidated Brig in Chesapeake.

Investigators said they found close to 300 images of pornography and bestiality on Frey's computer. Frey, 48, was also accused of viewing pornography aboard the amphibious assault ship Kearsarge.


Frey served as skipper of the Ponce and most recently as senior operations officer in charge of training exercises at Carrier Strike Group Four.

Frey waived his right to a formal hearing to determine whether he will be allowed to stay in the Navy or maintain his current rank. The Navy Personnel Command will review his case and make a determination in the coming months, a Navy spokeswoman said.
