FBI On The Insider Threat: U.S. Soldier Receives 16-year Sentence For Attempted Espionage

 The FBI offers a piece on the insider threat, spotlighting the case of a U.S. Army military policeman who was convicted of ettempted espionage.

A 22-year-old military police officer in Alaska has been sentenced to a 16-year jail term in connection with his efforts to sell classified documents to a person he believed was a Russian intelligence officer.

In 2011, William Millay was stationed at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson near Anchorage when he began to talk to—and solicit help from—other military members regarding selling classified national defense information to the Russians.

This case really drives home the point that the insider threat is alive and well," said Special Agent Sam Johnson, who supervisies a national security squad in our Anchorage Division. “That’s why counterintelligence investigations continue to be a very high priority for the FBI.”
