Former NSA contractor Reality Winner as was reported @ The News Blender entered a plea deal for violating the Espionage Act in June of 2018. Winner leaked “top secret classified documents,” to The Intercept, an online publication that after receiving what they believed were top-secret classified documents notified the FBI who then investigated. On Thursday a judge signed off on her sentence she accepted via the plea deal. Winner will spend “sixty-three months in jail,” be under “supervised release,” for three years, and perform one-hundred hours of “community service.”
