Well, how much usable information would the guy have? Anecdotal technical information to pass along? It's not like the guy would have thumb drives of files. Would word-of-mouth information be that useful considering the hacking ability of the Chinese?

He'd have a ton of information on tactics, weapons, carrier ops, and quite a bit of information on several platforms he has flown.

I wonder though, what he thought the Chinese would be able to do? Send in some black ops unit to bust him out? I feel like the Russians would be more capable (not saying they could pull it off either), but I mean what payoff did he think all this extra risk could bring him? (Granted I've never been to jail or anything so I don't know how desperate one gets).

Well, the recommendation of his attorney is 15 years, plus losing the only thing he's known his entire life. So I imagine that would make someone desperate for anything that could possibly help.

Yeah...but it's not like he'd be able to sketch technical blue prints from memory of the systems he's worked with. I'm sure the Chinese have a good handle on what our capabilities ARE, just now how we go about doing them. They're probably aware of our EWS, missiles, and aircraft ranges -- as well as the RCS's on them.

Now, tactics I could see being somewhat useful.

He could give them a lot more information than they could get online, even without designs and plans. You don't need designs and plans to be able to use the information. China is building their first CATOBAR carrier now. How useful do you think it would be to get operations down, with information from the only country in the world with a large CATOBAR carrier fleet, and shave 10-15 years off getting your own pilots ready and doctrine written?

He'll encounter that issue when he reaches the military prison he's going to be serving his sentence in. Child pornography, AND attempted espionage? This guy won't last three weeks.

mate this is one very poor excuse for an officer and a gentleman, an example setter, a leader of men and a human being
so he will end up in your mil. Prison.
do your mob still employ rule 7.62
Cheers and beers

You'd be surprised how much the people in military prisons look down on people willing to betray the US. It's ALMOST worse than child porn. And this guy has both on his record.

Holy Cow Zaph!......I am glad they intercepted the letter.... This thread reads like the "Twilight Zone" and then some.
I suspect this guy won't be around to even testify in any kind of military trial. Probably a good thing for all.

There are local military prisons, usually for minor offenses. Major offenders go to Leavenworth, or since he's Navy, there are several detention facilities he can go to, as well as several facilities run by the Navy for all services.

If there was any truth/risk he would probably suffer an 'accidental' shank in the showers.

I believe they actually usually do not check outgoing mail, it's incoming mail that is scrutinized.
