Suspected FBI Hezbollah spy sentenced to ... no jail time

She was here illegally, pursuant to a sham marriage she arranged with a U.S. citizen. She illegally accessed FBI records about herself and her brother-in-law not once but twice while working for the Bureau, a breach that warranted debriefings at the “highest levels of government.” Best of all, she was actually assigned to Baghdad for a time, where she spent her days interrogating Al Qaeda.

Total penalty for her various crimes: A $750 fine and off scot free. Exit question: Why didn’t the feds demand a jury trial instead of a bench trial?

Update: Ah, silly me. Debbie Schlussel e-mails to remind me that she pled guilty.
