U.S. Naval Officer Charged with Espionage

Reported by CNN, a Navy officer (Lt. Cmdr. Edward Lin) has been charged with espionage and attempted espionage, among other accusations, in a proceeding that has been designated a national security case.  The officer was arrested eight months ago, but information about his case didn't become available until after a preliminary hearing Friday (4/8/16).  Key parts of the charging sheet are redacted, but the details that are legible have all the trappings of a spy novel: Allegations of espionage, illegally sharing secret information, falsifying records, prostitution, adultery and more.
