ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The Navy says it will discipline the former leader of a bomb-sniffing dog unit in Bahrain following an investigation into allegations of hazing and sexual harassment.
Among the alleged victims was a gay sailor who said he developed post-traumatic stress disorder from the abuse and left the Navy by outing himself.
The decision to discipline Chief Petty Officer Michael Toussaint was announced Wednesday, following the Navy's decision last month to review more than 90 allegations occurring between 2004 and 2006.
The Secretary of the Navy also is issuing a letter of censure.
The Chief of Naval Operations has directed the Naval Criminal Investigative Service to conduct additional interviews with Navy personnel who were formerly stationed in Bahrain.
