FBI technician pleads guilty to being illegal Chinese agent

NEW YORK (AP) — An FBI electronics tech has pleaded guilty to funneling sensitive information to China.

Kun Shan Chun entered the plea on Monday in federal court in Manhattan.

The 46-year-old Chun was accused of giving a Chinese official photos of documents displayed in a restricted area of the FBI's New York office. Prosecutors say he also provided an FBI organizational chart and revealed the identity and travel plans of an FBI agent.

Chun faces up to 27 months in prison at sentencing on Dec. 2.

There was no immediate response to a request for comment from the Chinese Embassy in Washington.
