Defense contractor due at Hawaii plea hearing

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A civilian defense contractor faces a court hearing Thursday on federal charges after being accused of giving military secrets to a Chinese girlfriend.

Benjamin Bishop is expected to plead guilty in federal court in Honolulu.

His lawyer says Bishop plans to plead guilty to one count of transmitting national defense information to a person not entitled to receive it and one count of unlawfully retaining national defense documents and plans.

The 60-year-old Bishop was arrested nearly one year ago at U.S. Pacific Command headquarters.

Court documents say Bishop emailed his girlfriend classified information on joint training and planning sessions between the United States and South Korea.

The documents say Bishop also kept classified documents at home, including one on U.S. force posture in Asia and the Pacific.
