A Navy commander convicted of sexually pursuing enlisted women under his command was fined $10,000 and ordered to forfeit $30,000 in pay, but the all-male court-martial panel in Newport, R.I., spared him a jail term. Cmdr. John R. Hollis, 39, also was ordered confined to the Newport Naval Base for 60 days and had his chances of future promotion severely reduced. He had faced up to eight years in prison and ouster from the Navy for his conviction last week on four counts of fraternization and one of adultery.
