LITERALLY Rum, Sodomy & the Lash

"Fired DDG skipper charged with rape, sodomy."

SAN DIEGO — The former commanding officer of the destroyer Momsen has been charged with rape, sodomy and maltreatment and will be court-martialed on Friday, a Navy spokesman confirmed.

The charges stem from two alleged incidents, one with a female officer and another with a female enlisted member, both involving alcohol.

OK, to be fair, a lash isn't mentioned, but I'll include it under the general term maltreatment.

Here's the drink-sodden, maltreating sodomite:

USS Momsen, CDR. Jay Wylie, Sodomite.

Hmm, how do you rhyme Momsen? Well, we'll just go with the old classic:

What stupid, wasteful destruction of a career.

Walk the plank?

@Borepatch: Well, if he was an admiral, I'd recommend shooting him pour encourager les autres, but he's only a commander. Flogging round the fleet might suffice.

Walking the plank, of course, was a pirate custom, not a Navy custom, and really is more legendary than otherwise, only Stede Bonnet being known to have employed it.
