6. Aldrich Ames
Aldrich Ames was a 31-year veteran of the CIA when he was arrested by the FBI in 1994. It turned out that Ames had been spying for the Russians since 1985. The turning point came when the two agencies learned that someone in the CIA was giving information on the CIA’s Russian informers to Moscow, resulting in the execution of several informers. Ultimately, both he and his wife, Rosario, were arrested. Rosario has completed her sentence, but Aldrich received a sentence of life imprisonment, without parole.
7. Stephen Glass
From 1995 to 1998, Stephen Glass was the rising star reporter for The New Republic (TNR). But in 1998 it was revealed that Glass had fabricated the majority of his stories. Glass’s lies were uncovered when another reporter attempted to verify details in one of his stories and instead found that details of the story were false. Fired from TNR, Glass returned to college and became a lawyer. However, to date, he has been denied Bar applications in both New York and California.
