In U.S. District Court on Friday (October 24th), Glenn D. Shriver admitted to accepting $70,000 from Chinese spies while attempting to obtain jobs with the CIA and U.S. Foreign Service. The 28 year-old, from Grand Rapids, Mich., confessed to looking for these jobs in order to get classified information to sell to Beijing.

Court documents stated that while Shriver was living in Shanghai  in 2004 after earlier study trips to China, he was approached by Chinese officers. After Shriver answered an English Speaking ad, Chinese officers recruited him and got him to look for U.S. Government jobs that would allow him access to classified and secret documents.

Shriver plead guilty to a single count of  “conspiring to provide national defense information to Chinese intelligence officers.”
