WASHINGTON (AP) -- A senior military official says the U.S. expects to charge two Navy sailors in connection with the prostitution scandal that engulfed U.S. Secret Service and military members preparing for a presidential visit to Colombia earlier this year.

The official says the two sailors will be charged with hiring a prostitute and dereliction of duty for drinking within eight hours of the time they had to report for duty.

Of the dozen military members initially implicated, seven Army soldiers and two Marines received administrative punishments for what was described as misconduct, and one Air Force member was cleared. Three of the soldiers declined the administrative punishments and have requested courts-martial.
