A former civilian defense contractor in Hawaii on Thursday pleaded guilty to charges he divulged military secrets to his Chinese girlfriend and kept classified documents at his suburban Honolulu home.
A former B-2 stealth bomber engineer was sentenced to 32 years in prison Monday for selling military secrets to China in the latest of several high-profile cases of Chinese espionage in the United States.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Ken Sorenson, the prosecutor in the case, said any time classified information is given to someone without a security clearance, the U.S. loses control of that information.
"Because it could have been about love or because it could have been his girlfriend doesn't mean it wasn't damaging or doesn't mean she may or may not have been affiliated with somebody else," Sorenson said. "We don't know that."
