Former U.S. National Security Agency employee, Thomas Drake, agreed to a plea bargain that will reduce his charges from a felony under the Espionage Act to a misdemeanor for misusing the agency’s computer system. In this new scheme, prosecutors promised not to seek jail time. Drake originally faced a 35-year prison sentence for providing official documents to a reporter for The Baltimore Sun.
