A former German spy who provided classified information to the CIA and the Russians was sentenced to eight years in prison for violating the country’s official secrets law.
Markus R., whose last name has not been made public, was convicted by a Munich state court, the Associated Press reports.
He was accused of selling roughly 20 highly classified documents to the CIA for $91,000. Among the information he shared was a list of German agents working abroad.
The 32-year-old confessed at trial, saying he was bored and frustrated.
He also provided “highly important” documents to Russians before ending the contact.
