Gang built gun factory to supply criminal underworld Two men who set up a gun factory to supply London's criminal underworld have been jailed for a total of 29 and a half years. Kyle Wood and Greg Akehurst, both 30, and a third man, Mark Kinman, 63, were in the process of making around 120 weapons when their East Sussex building was raided by National Crime Agency (NCA) officers on 18 August last year. Wood, from Littlehampton, West Sussex, and Akehurst, of no fixed address, had been tracked to the gun factory, operating under the name of MFK Engineering, on an industrial estate in Hailsham.

Pic: Alexandria Sheriff's Office A former CIA officer has been sentenced to 20 years in jail after spying for China and trying to expose agents who had been under his charge.

Kevin Mallory, 62, from Leesburg, Virginia, was convicted last year under the Espionage Act after providing classified information to Chinese handlers in exchange for $25,000 (£20,000).

Prosecutors had sought to have him jailed for life, while his defence lawyers had asked for no more than 10 years in jail.

The court in Alexandria had heard that Mallory was caught after being selected for secondary screening at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport in April 2017.

A former CIA officer has been jailed for 20 years for disclosing military secrets to a Chinese agent, the US justice department says. Kevin Mallory, 62, was found guilty of several spying offences following a two-week trial last June. The fluent Mandarin speaker from Leesburg, Virginia, held top-level security

He had been returning from Shanghai with his son and customs agents found he had $16,500 (£13,000) in unreported cash.

When he was interviewed, a phone given to him by the Chinese showed conversations between him and his recruiter that he had thought would be hidden by the phone's secure messaging features.

In one message, he had written: "Your object is to gain information, and my object is to be paid."

Prosecutor John Gibbs had told the court that the crime had been "very basic", adding that Mallory had been "desperate for money and the most valuable thing he had was our nation's secrets".

Defence lawyers had said the amount of money was relative small but Judge Ellis said this was only because Mallory had been caught at an early stage.

Doctor jailed for sexually assaulting patients, including children A 71-year-old doctor has been jailed for 10 and a half years for sexually assaulting 15 patients, including children, over a 20 year period. Former GP Alan Tutin, from Tonbridge, Kent, groped women and girls who had booked appointments for minor illnesses, including a sore throat, a mole and for the contraceptive pill.

The former defence intelligence agency official Ron Hansen faces 15 years in prison after pleading guilty in March to charges of attempting to sell classified information to And in the most significant case, on 1 May, the former CIA officer Jerry Chun Shing Lee pleaded guilty to spying for China .

Much of the evidence remains classified and parts of the hearing were closed to the public.

Lawyers from both sides disagreed about whether Mallory intended to put lives at risk.

Prosecutors said Mallory either sent or intended to send evidence that would have led to the exposure of human assets described as "the Johnsons".

Mallory, who speaks fluent Mandarin, had been their handler when he worked at the CIA.

But defence lawyers said there was computer forensic evidence supporting their claim that Mallory had never intended to expose them.

Judge Ellis did not make a conclusion on this but did say that Mallory's "long-term intentions" were sinister, adding: "If I had concluded that sources had been compromised... I would impose a far more severe sentence.

"If you choose to play footsie with another country... you have committed a crime," Judge Ellis said. "Don't think that you can be a double agent."
