34 Years in Confinement for Sailor Who Admitted Attempted Espionage

Navy Captain Moira Modzelewski sentenced PO2 Bryan Minkyu Martin to a dishonorable discharge and 34 years in confinement for his admitted attempts to transfer classified US military information, including items pertaining to the current wars, to an individual he believed was a Chinese government agent.  Of course, the "agent" part was correct--"Mr. Lee" was an FBI agent.  The exchanges of information for cash were captured on government videotape, which the trial counsel played for the military judge earlier today.
