A federal judge ordered that a scientist remain jailed on a charge that he tried to pass national secrets to the Israeli government in exchange for $11,000.

Stewart D. Nozette, 52, was arrested Monday on a charge of attempted espionage after authorities accused him of passing classified information to an undercover FBI agent posing as an Israeli intelligence operative.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Deborah Robinson ordered Nozette detained until a preliminary hearing Oct. 29.
