Army vet admits trying to sell secrets to Russia while working for NSA

A former National Security Agency (NSA) employee pleaded guilty to attempting to sell classified information to Russia.

Jareh Sebastian Dalke, a 31-year-old U.S. Army veteran, agreed to the guilty plea after being accused of giving classified information to an undercover FBI agent, according to a report from NBC News.

Dalke faced a possible life sentence in the case, but agreed to the plea in exchange for a vow by federal prosecutors that they would not ask for more than 22 years in prison.

Despite Dalke’s agreement with prosecutors, a judge will have the final say the amount of prison time he receives during April sentencing.
