ALAMEDA -- A Bay Area Coast Guard officer was sentenced to five years in military prison this week after pleading guilty to committing sex crimes on the job, officials said.

Petty Officer First Class Christopher S. Molloy, 31, was convicted on all counts against him, including charges of abusive sexual contact, indecent acts, assault, and failure to obey orders or regulations from 2011 to 2013, authorities said. He was dishonorably discharged from his assignment as a health services technician with the Coast Guard Sector San Francisco.

Molloy was accused of secretly videotaping and improperly touching victims under his care, then making false statements to the government during their investigation, said Lt. Anna Dixon, spokeswoman for the 11th Coast Guard District. He also failed to follow proper medical procedure, then properly document the procedures he had done.

In addition to prison time and discharge, Molloy was reduced in rank to the lowest enlisted pay grade, Dixon said. He will be required to register as a sex offender, and has been returned to the U.S. Naval Consolidated Brig in Miramar to serve out his sentence.

"Among the greatest strengths of the Coast Guard are our core values of honor, respect and devotion to duty," Dixon said. "The guilty party in this case does not represent the fine men and women of our service. The Coast Guard will not tolerate such violations of trust, and we stand ready to help and support his victims."

In deliberation proceedings on Coast Guard Island, the court-martial panel returned a sentence of 15 years confinement, ten of which were suspended because Molloy pleaded guilty, Dixon said. He will be required to serve the full 15 years if he fails to comply with certain terms of his sentence.
