Accused: Michael Sullivan 

A senior officer with the U.S. Coast Guard’s Pacific Area staff has been temporarily reassigned to a nonsupervisory position after being charged with using cocaine, the Coast Guard announced Wednesday.

Sullivan was charged Tuesday with wrongful use of cocaine as well as one charge of obstruction of justice.

He will be investigated and will have a preliminary hearing before charges are referred for trial to a general court-martial.

If found guilty of both charges, Sullivan faces up to 10 years in prison and dismissal from the Coast Guardside Lands Music Festival.
