A boozed-up Navy destroyer skipper is about to get the book thrown at him in San Diego.

CMDR Jay Wylie's court-martial begins this week. The 19-year Navy veteran is in big trouble. He's charged with rape, sodomy, aggravated sexual assault and a laundry list of other charges that will boot him out of the Navy with no retirement pension and perhaps put him behind bars for some years to come.

The Glendale, Calif. man's troubles began with a whiskey bottle. Sources say whenever the former Navy commander got drunk he "came on" to the nearest female in uniform.

According to his charge sheet, Wylie, while "publicly intoxicated," was on a liberty port call at Victoria in the Seychelles Dec. 31, 2010 when he "pinned" a junior officer up against a bar, tried to kiss her, and put his hand up her dress and into her panties.

SECOND INCIDENT WITH ENLISTED SAILOR IN CABIN

Four months later, Wylie, allegedly soused, "coaxed" an enlisted female into his cabin on the DD Momsen where he reportedly kissed and fondled her, putting his hands and mouth on the woman's genitals.

After the second incident, Rear Adm. Mark Guadagnini fired Wylie, stating he had "lost confidence" in the officer's ability to command "stemming from allegations of misconduct."

The 40 year-old former skipper was commissioned in 1992 and took command of the Everett, Wash.-based Momsen on July 8, 2010. He has served tours of duty on the cruiser Port Royal, destroyers Carney and Benfold, and was executive officer of the DD Kidd.

Wylie is a graduate of the University of Southern California.
