Former Intelligence Officer Sentence in Chinese Espionage 

A former U.S. intelligence officer has been sentenced to 10 years in prison in a Chinese espionage case.

Ron Hansen, 60, of Syracuse, Utah, pleaded guilty in March to trying to give classified U.S. national defense information to China. He also admitted to receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars for being an agent for the Chinese government.

FBI agents arrested Hansen in June 2018 as he was on his way to the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to board a flight to China, the Justice Department said.
