NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) - Officials at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy say a service member and five civilian employees were disciplined for misusing the school's computers and engaging in sex acts during the workday.
Academy spokesman David Santos told The Day of New London on Tuesday that the six people used government computers to send sexually explicit and other inappropriate content, and some of the six participated in consensual sex acts on the grounds of the New London academy.
Santos says the improper activities took place over a 2½-year period.
The service member was not a cadet and was discharged from the Coast Guard. Two civilian workers resigned and three were disciplined.
The academy didn't release the six people's names or details of the punishments, citing the privacy exemption to public records law.
