NORFOLK, Va. —A Navy chaplain accused of soliciting female sailors for sex has been sentenced to 10 years confinement and was kicked out of the service after being convicted of rape.

Lt. Shane Dillman, a Pentecostal chaplain, also was convicted Monday in a military court in Norfolk of fraternization. The victim said they became friends after she asked him for help.

Last week, the 37-year-old Dillman pleaded guilty to adultery, fraternization and other charges stemming from relationships with two other women. The married father of three had been accused of asking younger female sailors about their sexual encounters and calling one to his office while he was only wearing underwear.

The chaplain had won awards in the past for ministering to wounded troops at Bethesda Naval Medical Center.
