NORFOLK, Va. — A member of the Navy's elite SEAL Team 6 has been convicted of indecent conduct in a case where he was accused of impersonating someone and soliciting nude photos of women. 

A Navy statement obtained by The Virginian-Pilot says petty Officer 1st Class Aaron Howard was sentenced Friday to 30 days in a military prison. He was also ordered to forfeit $500 in pay for three months and had his rank reduced. 

Prosecutors alleged during a court-martial in Norfolk that Howard pretended to be a female dietitian hired by the Navy in order to get women to send naked pictures.
