Judge Gives Naval Officer 6 Years in Prison for Similar Offense to Hillary Clinton’s

(UPI) — A naval flight officer who pleaded guilty in May to disclosing classified information will spend six years in prison, a military judge in Virginia ruled.

Cmdr. Robert Monahan said Friday that in addition to the time behind bars — with 646 days of time served credit — Lt. Cmdr. Edward Lin, 40, will be dismissed from the Navy. He faced up to nine years in prison.

In early May, Lin’s espionage charges under the Uniform Code of Military Justice were dropped when he pleaded guilty to lesser ones under the Espionage Act. He also pleaded guilty to failure to report his foreign contacts, mishandling classified information and making false statements about his travel plans.
