http://www.stripes.com/news/army/army-major-guilty-in-data-leak-gets-10-year-sentence-1.226150 By Ken Kobayashi and William Cole The Honolulu Star-Advertiser June 15, 2013 An Army officer who worked for U.S. Pacific Command was found guilty Friday by a military jury of illegally possessing and passing classified national defense information, an Army official said. The jury Friday night sentenced Maj. Seivirak Inson to 10 years in prison, forfeiture of pay and dismissal from the Army. Inson passed classified intelligence assessments about Cambodia to an unidentified person not entitled to have them between 2009 and 2012, and had unauthorized possession of a U.S. Pacific Command maritime strategy document, which he “had reason to believe could be used to the injury of the United States,” the Army said. Capt. Leslie Waddle, a spokes­­woman for the Army’s 8th Theater Sustainment Command in Hawaii, said Inson was found guilty of those charges as well as a charge that he had unauthorized possession of a Defense Intelligence Agency intelligence report, and that he failed to report to his chain of command that he had contact with Cambodian military and government officials.
