A former CIA officer was sentenced on Friday to 20 years in prison on charges that he spied for China and allegations he sought to expose human assets who were once his responsibility.

The sentence issued by US District Judge T.S. Ellis III in federal court in Alexandria for Kevin Mallory, 62, of Leesburg, Virginia, is less than the life sentence sought by prosecutors but more than the 10-year term requested by the defence.

A jury convicted Mallory last year under the Espionage Act for providing classified information to Chinese handlers in exchange for US$25,000.
