DEA Agent Gets Jail Time for Leaks

"A federal judge in Atlanta has imposed a one-year prison sentence on a former intelligence analyst charged with stealing government information and leaking it to a London newspaper.

The U.S. Attorney said, "We have to send that message to everybody within the justice system." Duffey's prosecution of Randel is in line with a report by U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft's interagency, anti-leak task force, which last year recommended that government administrators use laws already on the books to identify and punish employees who leak information."

Very interesting article.
