Ex-FBI agent sentenced for leaking classified documents to reporter – Update The World

U.S. District Judge Wilhelmina Wright told Terry James Albury, 39, who pleaded guilty earlier this year, that he “knowingly” committed the crime despite its illegality, according to The Associated Press.

He pleaded guilty in April to one count each of unauthorized disclosure of national defense information and unauthorized retention of national defense information.

Defense attorneys for Albury reportedly requested he be given probation, maintaining that he acted patriotically and was morally conflicted by the FBI’s counterterrorism policies that he viewed as racial profiling.
