A Michigan man was sentenced on Friday to four years in prison for trying to get a job with the CIA so he could spy for China, just as Chinese President Hu Jintao was wrapping up his U.S. visit.
Glenn Shriver, 29, pleaded guilty in October to conspiracy to communicate national defense information after admitting he met Chinese officials about 20 times and took about $70,000 from Chinese intelligence officers.
Shriver said at the sentencing hearing he made a "terrible decision" to try to spy for China and "somewhere along the way I got into bed with the wrong people."
U.S. District Judge Liam O'Grady sentenced Shriver to four years in prison, as called for in the plea agreement, followed by two years of supervised release.
"Mr. Shriver sold out his country and repeatedly sought a position in our intelligence community so that he could provide classified information to the PRC (People's Republic of China)," U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride said in a statement.

Just as Hu shows up
4 years? How about hanging in every case of trying to spy.
I guess treason isn’t a crime anymore. The only just punishment for this crime is making him toes up.
“somewhere along the way I got into bed with the wrong people.”
Like the Clintons are ever going to leave that position.
I guess China is a friend of the USA.
Pollard made the mistake of spying for our enemy, Israel. \s
