30 Months for former CIA Agent

Following a plea bargain confession to leaking the name of an agent to a reporter, former CIA agent John C Kiriakou will spend 30 months in prison starting January 25.

Kiriakou quit the CIA in 2004, criticizing interrogation torture methods, subsequently leaking the name to the media. This will be the first agent incarceration for such an offense in 60 years.
