Complicity to commit Espionage is as follows:
Espionage Punishment
Espionage punishment will vary based upon the facts of the case. Particularly, it is important to note that under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, members of the armed forces who engage in espionage may receive a death sentence. Civilians who engage in espionage under United States federal law can receive some of the harshest punishments provided for under any federal statute, which may include life in prison.
Espionage Sentencing Guidelines
Espionage sentencing guidelines are especially complex. Espionage cases are evaluated on the basis of a point level, with each different type of offense having a “Base Offense Level.” The authorities calculate various factors in order to develop a total point level that informs the sentence. For example, transmitting national defense information to aid a foreign government has a base offense level of 37, or 42 if the information is considered Top Secret.
Espionage Statute of Limitations
Although federal statute USC 3282 provides for a five-year statute of limitation for the vast majority of federal crimes, this statute of limitations does not necessarily stand in the case of espionage prosecution. It is generally agreed by legal scholars that acts of espionage can be prosecuted for at least ten years after the alleged act. Certain executive acts and extenuating factors may provide for prosecution after an even longer period of time.
