A Maryland scientist busted in an FBI sting in 2009 for attempting to spy for Israel, pleaded guilty Wednesday in D.C. federal court to one count of attempted espionage, the Associated Press reported.

Stewart D. Nozette, 54, was charged in 2009 with giving sensitive government information to an undercover FBI agent posing as an Israeli intelligence officer with the Mossad.  In exchange, the agent paid him $11,000.

Nozette plea calls for a 13 year sentence, with two years credit for time served, AP reported.

In 2009, in a hotel room in Northwest Washington, Nozette told the undercover agent posing as a Mossad agent:

Nozette: I don’t get recruited by Mossad every day. I knew this day would come by the way.

 Agent: How’s that.

Nozette: (laughs) I just had a feeling one of these days.

Agent: Really?

 Nozette: I knew you guys would show up.

Nozette over the years worked for the Department of Energy, the Department of Defense and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
