ALERT: US Official Arrested For Giving Chinese Agent Top-Secret…

Crime does not pay. A Virginia man is finding that out the hard way.

Kevin Mallory, 60 was arrested with $16,500 in cash in his carry-on luggage. He was charged with transmitting top-secret documents to a reportedly Chinese agent.

Mallory made his initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Virginia. He was charged under the federal Espionage Act and is facing life in prison if convicted.

This case is so serious that, if certain conditions are met, Mallory would be eligible for the death penalty, said prosecutor John Gibbs.

Court records show that Mallory was an Army veteran. He worked as a special agent for the Diplomatic Security Service at the U.S. State Department from 1987 to 1990. Since then, he has worked for many government agencies and defense contractors.

He was a self-employed consultant at the time of his arrest.

Mallory speaks Chinese and held Top Secret security clearance.
