Cuban Spies Cooperating with US

Tuesday, 27 Apr 2010 08:55 PM

WASHINGTON - Admitted spies Walter and Gwendolyn Myers have met with federal officials 50 to 60 times to divulge details of their three decades of spying for Cuba, Justice Department officials said Tuesday.

The Washington couple pleaded guilty in November to sending secrets to the United States' longtime antagonist, agreeing to cooperate with the federal government in a deal that offered Gwendolyn Myers a much lighter sentence than she might have faced otherwise.

Walter Myers - a former State Department employee with top-secret clearance - agreed to a life sentence without parole. Gwendolyn Myers could have faced as much as 20 years in prison, but under the plea deal, she might serve six to seven-and-a-half years.

U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton on Tuesday set a sentencing date for July 16. The couple have asked Walton to place them in prisons as close together as possible.
