Cigars, wild sex & bribery: Documents delay Navy corruption trial

It sounds like it would be an interesting trial. Twenty-five people -- high officials from the Navy and military contractors -- are accused of playing it fast and loose with the rules in Southeast Asia. Agents of defense contractor Glenn Defense Marine Asia allegedly provided Seventh Fleet officials with luxury dinners and travel, $2,000-a-box cigars, premium cognac, travel and 'wild sex parties' with prostitutes in exchange for classified information that would allow them to garner massive contracts with the Fleet.

"The alleged conduct amounts to a staggering degree of corruption by the most prominent leaders of the Seventh Fleet - the largest fleet in the U.S. Navy - actively worked together as a team to trade secrets for sex, serving the interests of a greedy foreign defense contractor, and not those of their own country," says the U.S. Attorney.

Should I refuse a sobriety test?

Let's say you and your friends have been hanging out at a party that served alcoholic beverages and you begin to drive everyone home. Along the way, police lights flash in your rearview mirror and a cop pulls you over. Suddenly, you are being asked to perform a sobriety test because you are suspected of intoxicated driving.

Regardless of whether or not you consumed alcohol before driving, your next choice could have large consequences in your life.
