FBI agent leaked infoAn FBI agent was sentenced Thursday to four years in federal prison after pleading guilty to giving classified information to a reporter.

Former agent Terry Albury, who worked in the FBI's Minneapolis field office and helped on counterterrorism efforts, admitted to leaking national security information to The Intercept, which used the documents for a series called "The FBI's Secret Rules."

Prosecutors alleged Albury secretly released documents from the bureau and other government agencies for about 18 months by cutting and pasting information from documents so he would not leave a record of downloading or printing certain records. He also took photos of other documents and sent them to The Intercept, prosecutors alleged in federal court filings.
