Ex-Pentagon officer gets three years for spying
The Associated Press reports that a former Pentagon official has been sentenced to three years for spying.
James Fondren, a 62-year-old former Air Force officer, was convicted of giving classified information to a friend who turned out to be a Chinese spy. Fondren could have gotten a longer sentence of 6 1/2 years, but U.S. District Judge Claude Hilton said a lighter sentence was warranted because the information Fondren disclosed caused little or no harm to national security.
