Centcom official arrested after teen's sex accusations
For four years, Stephen Michael Governale hobnobbed with the world’s military leaders as a protocol officer for U.S. Central Command, based at MacDill Air Force Base. He’s seen in a picture of former Centcom commanding general David Petraeus shaking hands with the head of Pakistan’s military and last year, and he was one of two to win the command’s civilian of the year award.
But FBI agents say there is another side to Governale, an Air Force Reserve lieutenant colonel who works with Centcom as a civilian.
Friday, he was arrested in Orlando, charged with using the Internet to try and persuade a 17-year-old to have sex. In a federal complaint, the teen tells investigators he traveled with Governale on two occasions and engaged in sexual acts with him.
Governale, 49, of Tampa, was arrested by the FBI’s Innocent Images Task Force after he arrived at a fast-food restaurant where he planned to meet the teen after several sexually explicit Facebook chats...................
Governale's Facebook page mentions that he is married with children.
Governale, who has been appointed a federal public defender, is in custody at the Seminole County Jail with no bail set pending a preliminary hearing Oct. 1.
