A Navy petty officer was sentenced to 12 years in prison for stealing a military laptop and peddling its contents to a foreign government. The man, Petty Officer Third Class Ariel J. Weinmann, admitted guilt to espionage, desertion, larceny and destruction of government property before a military judge at Norfolk Naval Station this week. Petty Officer Weinmann, 22, of Salem, Ore., was dishonorably discharged. Officials had accused him of passing classified information to representatives of undisclosed foreign governments. He deserted from the submarine Albuquerque in July 2005.
