Former Senate Intelligence Committee security director James Wolfe was sentenced on Thursday to two months in prison for lying to the FBI about his interactions with journalists. …

The sentence imposed by U.S. District Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson fell well short of the two years that prosecutors recommended. However, the judge also rebuffed Wolfe’s lawyers request that he be spared jail and put on probation.

Wolfe, 58, pleaded guilty last October to a felony false statement charge for lying to the FBI, but did not admit to leaking classified information. He did, however, concede discussing unclassified but non-public information with reporters in violation of Senate Intelligence Committee rules.
