Calif Marine Major Sentenced for Passing Secrets

Friday, 14 May 2010 10:56 AM

A Camp Pendleton Marine officer who leaked intelligence documents to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has been sentenced to 90 days in confinement.

Maj. Mark Lowe also was sentenced Thursday to a reprimand and ordered to forfeit $6,000 in pay.

He pleaded guilty in a military trial to dereliction of duty and conduct unbecoming an officer.

Lowe and four others were accused of passing secret information to a sheriff's anti-terrorism unit between 2003 and 2004. Court testimony says some of the material came from the CIA.

Col. Larry Richards is awaiting trial in the case, while three lower-ranking Marines either pleaded guilty or were convicted.
