Ex-NSA Employee Sentenced to nearly 22 Years for Selling Classified Information to Undercover FBI Operative

A former NSA employee who sold classified information to an undercover FBI agent was sentenced to nearly 22 years in prison by a federal judge in Denver. Despite pleading guilty, the judge called the actions a betrayal close to treason. The defendant’s lawyers argued for a lighter sentence due to mental health issues and childhood trauma. The defendant claimed he was not motivated by ideology or money. The information sold included sensitive US defense capabilities. The FBI agent stated the defendant knew the risk posed by disclosing the documents, which was expected to cause grave danger to national security.
