Ex-CIA contractor gets 90 days for retaining secret info

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — A former CIA contractor has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for unauthorized retention of classified materials.

Fifty-four-year-old Reynaldo Regis of Fort Washington, Maryland, had been seeking probation at his sentencing hearing Friday in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia.

His lawyers pointed to probationary sentences received by retired Gen. David Petraeus and former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger in their high-profile document retention cases.

Prosecutors recommended zero to six months in prison.

Regis worked as a government contractor assigned to the CIA between 2006 and 2016. He admitted copying classified information into dozens of personal notebooks and conducting unauthorized searches of classified databases.

Friday’s hearing shed no light on why Regis kept the notebooks, but his lawyer, Cary Citronberg, said Regis had no nefarious purpose.
