Also commonly known as spying, espionage is a crime that occurs when a person acquires confidential information without the owner's authorization. Industrial espionage occurs when the information gathered is the property of a corporation. Traditional espionage usually refers to the theft of information for use in military terms, such as weapons secrets, strategies and more. Anyone who has been charged with espionage in the military should strongly consider seeking the services of a court martial lawyer as soon as possible.
There are a wide variety of ways in which espionage can harm the United States government. One of the most important methods of collecting classified information is to infiltrate government ranks and take advantage of the position to acquire the target information. Once inside, a spy can do any number of other things such as providing false information, influencing others, stealing information such as weapons, plans or technologies to name a few. Espionage is one of the most serious crimes that can be committed against the nation. In addition to the obvious penalties a member of the armed forces may suffer as a result of a command investigation, those convicted may face deportation, prison sentences, and even death.
