Brian Scott Orr, a former U.S. Air Force civilian employee who tried to sell classified information about a military satellite network to China, has been sentenced to more than three years in prison and fined $10,000. Orr worked with the Air Force Research Laboratory in New York on a computer network used to control military satellites, prosecutors said. He resigned in 2011, but held on to some restricted training material that he sold for $5,000 last year to someone he believed was a Chinese spy who actually was an FBI agent. Orr, of Marina del Rey, had claimed to the agent that he was the "foremost expert on attacking the computer network," prosecutors said. He pleaded guilty last March to keeping stolen government property.
