Tong Wei, the lawyer to American geologist Xue Feng, walks out from the Beijing No. 1 Intermediate People's Court where sentencing for Xue Feng was to take place in Beijing, China, Monday, July 5, 2010. Xue Feng, an American geologist detained and tortured by China's state security agents over an oil industry database, was jailed for eight years Monday in a troubling example of China's rough justice system and the way the U.S. government handles cases against its citizens. The court convicted Xue Feng of collecting intelligence for overseas and illegally providing state secrets. (AP Photo/Ng Han Guan)
