Interesting facts from the now-ended, long running bribery related case of John Sims:
1) the federal investigation began in 2009, showing just how long some of these investigations take.
2) Mr. Sims apparently was both a contractor and a civilian employee through critical periods of this investigation/prosecution
3) guilty plea was to 5 of the 34 counts in the indictment.
More details of the plea are here http://www.military.com/daily-news/2014/07/14/retired-air-force-officer-pleads-guilty-to-bribery-theft.html The sentencing details were not as widely published, with many behind subscription firewalls.
