SEAL impersonator gets prison for lying

NORFOLK -- A man who posed as a Navy SEAL to convince investors to
lend him money for his business was sentenced Wednesday to two years
in prison for lying.

Robert Anthony Nolan, 38, also must pay restitution of $167,000 to
investors and insurance companies that were victims of his scheme.

Nolan owned OmniTrade International Inc., an import-export business in
Virginia Beach that sold fish and other items to Egypt and elsewhere. He
had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in its investigation of his business

FBI agents arrested Nolan in August in Virginia Beach on charges of mail
fraud and making false statements to agents regarding bank loans and
insurance invoices. He filed fraudulent insurance claims for property stolen
from his office that had not actually been stolen, according to an

The indictment also said Nolan lied to agents when he denied threatening
to kill a former business partner, lied when he denied falsifying his military
discharge papers and lied about not forging documents needed to export
fish to Egypt.

Nolan, once named Sailor of the Year on the carrier America, received a
less-than-honorable discharge from the Navy in June 1992 after going
AWOL for 53 days, court records said. Federal officials said Nolan never
served as a SEAL. Nolan apologized in court Wednesday and said he
would turn his life around once he is released.
