Former Defense Intelligence Agency officer
was sentenced to 10 years in prison for spying for Chinese intelligence.
The sentence was imposed by U.S. district judge Dee Benson Tuesday in federal court Salt Lake City.
Hansen was arrested in June 2018 and pleaded guilty in March to one count of attempting to sell national defense secrets to China.
In court it was disclosed that Hansen had been cooperating with the U.S. government and the judge said he provided valuable information on Chinese intelligence operating methods.
