NEW YORK (AP) - An FBI electronics tech has been sentenced to two years in prison after he admitted funneling sensitive information to China.

Kun Shan Chun was sentenced Friday in Manhattan federal court by Judge Victor Marrero.

The 46-year-old Chun was accused of giving a Chinese official photos of documents displayed in a restricted area of the FBI’s New York office. Prosecutors say he also provided an FBI organizational chart and revealed the identity and travel plans of an FBI agent.

Chun faced up to 27 months in prison at the sentencing.

Before he was sentenced, Chun apologized, repeatedly saying through sobs he was sorry. Stone-faced FBI employees in the courtroom glared at him.

Chun’s lawyer declined comment after the sentencing.
