Former defense contractor pleads guilty to sharing classified documents
Tuesday - 12/10/2013, 3:50am EST
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- A former Defense Department contractor is facing prison time after pleading guilty to charges related to the removal of classified materials.
Federal prosecutors say 50-year-old Bruce Schliemann, of Austin, Texas, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Charlottesville on Monday.
He faces up to one year in prison and/or a fine of up to $100,000 when he is sentenced.
According to a statement of facts filed in court, the retired Navy SEAL was working for a Defense Department contractor in San Diego in 2010.
Officials say in April 2010, Schliemann downloaded classified information from a classified computer in a secure facility to a personal thumb drive. That information was then emailed to employees of another defense contractor in Virginia. The information was then subsequently transmitted to other unauthorized persons.
