(WASHINGTON) -- A Michigan man faces prison time after pleading guilty to spying charges. 28-year-old Glenn Shriver faces four years behind bars after admitting he failed to disclose on U.S. government job applications that he had had contact with Chinese intelligence officials.
Shriver had apparently sought employment with the State Department or the C.I.A. in 2009 and 2010, but lied on the applications, denying contact with a foreign government.
Shriver had made visits to China between 2004 and 2007. Federal authorities say he received $70,000 dollars from Chinese intelligence officers while there.
