July 24, 1986

Convicted spy Ronald W. Pelton has agreed to disclose the nature of the information he gave to Soviet agents about U.S. intelligence-gathering projects, officials said. Pelton, 44, who faces life imprisonment for each of the three espionage convictions last month, compromised top-secret information on U.S. eavesdropping capabilities. His sentencing, which was set for Monday, has been postponed. The government had said it might recommend a lighter sentence in exchange for the disclosures.
