ATLANTA (AP) - A Florida man has pleaded guilty to bribing a public official at a Georgia military base.

The Department of Justice announced Wednesday that 60-year-old Ivan Dwight Brannan of Jupiter, Florida, pleaded guilty to paying bribes at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany, Georgia. Brannan is a former agent for a large national trucking company.
