Air Force Spy Suspect Pleads Not Guilty

November 06, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

A retired Air Force sergeant accused of attempted espionage pleaded not guilty in federal court in Alexandria.

Brian P. Regan of Bowie, Md., could face life in prison if convicted. His trial is set for March.

The indictment alleges that Regan improperly used a classified government computer network to obtain secret images of missile facilities in two unnamed countries.

When he was arrested in August at Dulles International Airport near Washington on his way to Germany, he carried in his wallet and shoe the addresses of the Chinese and Iraqi embassies in Switzerland and Austria, the indictment said.

Regan worked at the National Reconnaissance Office, which builds and operates U.S. spy satellites.
