Navy Times reports, The former blue crew commander of the submarine Pennsylvania who was fired in June, is facing disciplinary action after a Navy investigation resulted in charges of adultery and conduct unbecoming an officer, Pacific Fleet officials said.
An investigation verified that Cmdr. Steven Everhart violated the Uniform Code of Military Justice, according to Submarine Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet spokesman Cmdr. Corey Barker.
“Appropriate disciplinary and administrative actions are in progress,” Barker said in an email.
Everhart is currently assigned to the staff of Submarine Group Nine.
He was relieved June 23 by the head of Submarine Squadron 17 for what was then characterized as a loss of confidence in his leadership.
Everhart had taken command of the Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine in January.

Food for thought: The USS Pennsylvania, an Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine, is considered the world’s most powerful killing machine, as highlighted in the following documentary.
I’m flagging this particular case to follow until the end, as the Board for Correction of Naval Records (BCNR) continues to stall their final decision on my application for clemency.
To think that in 2008, a Navy court-martial found me guilty of conduct unbecoming an officer and adultery (as a single person), I was sentenced to serve 60 days in prison, fined $9,600 and was subsequently discharged from the Navy without my pension benefits, and I had far less responsibility than CDR Everhart.
Yet I continue to beg the question, with so many officers involved in the "Fat Leonard" Sex, Fraud, and Bribery scandal, pleading guilty to having sexual relations with prostitutes, why are they (married officers) not being charged with conduct unbecoming an officer and adultery?!
“Selective Prosecution,” at its best I presume?!
