A former Washington area federal prosecutor who helped put away some key spies including CIA double-agent Aldrich Ames, died this past weekend of colon cancer, the Washington Post reported. He was 53.

Mark J. Hulkower, 53, worked at the U.S. Attorney’s office in Alexandria, Va.,from 1989 to 1995 and went into private practice where he defended clients from companies like Enron and Blackwater, the Post reported. He was a partner at the D.C. firm of Steptoe and Johnson at the time of his death.

During his reign as a federal prosecutor, the Post reported, that he got convictions in spy cases that included defendants Frank Nesbitt, a one-time Marine who passed secrets to the Russians; Frederick C. Hamilton, a Defense Intelligence Agency researcher who gave secrets to the Ecuador and Steven J. Lalas, a State Department staffer who spied for Greece.

“No matter how overwhelming the evidence can be, prosecuting espionage cases is never easy,” John L. Martin, the retired chief of internal security at the Justice Department told the Post. “Mark was prepared to the teeth.”
