ashington (CNN) -- A former State Department analyst was sentenced to life in prison Friday for spying for Cuba for almost 30 years.

His wife and partner in spying received a sentence of six years and nine months, but will get credit for more than a year already served.

Kendall Myers, 73, pleaded guilty last November to conspiracy to commit espionage and wire fraud. His wife, Gwendolyn Steingraber Myers, 72, admitted to one count of conspiracy to gather and transmit national defense information.

What they did was wrong, ...

But I can't help but feel sorry for the old folks, he will, and she will most likely die in prison now.

Why would they throw away their lives for this. To help cuba of all places, Cuba is as dangerous as a Kitten wearing a bandana with penchant for shenanigans.

In June 2009, right after the arrests, Fidel Castro questioned the timing - just 24 hours after the Organization of American States voted to lift a decades-old suspension of Cuba's membership in that group.

"Doesn't the story of Cuban spying seem really ridiculous to everyone?" Castro asked, without commenting on its validity.

There was no immediate reaction from Havana on Friday to news of the sentences.

How about this part. Real cloak and dagger. Wonder why these two were not caught in 1995. Im sure the Cuban intelligence medals would of been a red flag that they might be spies.


Justice Department prosecutor Michael Harvey said the couple received medals from Cuban intelligence and were flown to the island nation for a visit with Fidel Castro in 1995. They pleaded guilty last November.
