Strange case of Kentucky soldier charged with espionage
(Christopher Hignite) American Army Specialist William Millay, a 22-year-old military policeman from Owensboro, Kentucky, stationed at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska has been arrested and is awaiting charges of espionage.
Millay was originally being held at the Anchorage jail but the military has stated that he will be prosecuted through the military justice system. Lt. Col. Bill Coppernoll, a spokesman for U.S. Army Alaska, stated to Army Times that within a week “We are preparing to prefer charges against Spc. Millay.”
The FBI spokesman for Alaska, Eric Gonzalez, says his agency and military personnel investigated the case. Gonzalez also confirmed that Millay is not being connected to any leaks to WikiLeaks.
