U.S. Naval Flight Officer Lt. Cmdr. Edward Lin Accused of Giving U.S. Secrets To China

A Navy lieutenant commander has been charged with espionage and prostitution, newly revealed documents show.

Edward C. Lin was nabbed eight months ago at an airport in the U.S. Pacific Command region while heading to a foreign country, according to USNI News, which first reported the case. Details were sparse.

Lin illegally shared secret information and falsified records, according to documents from a preliminary hearing Friday.

The charges also include paying for a prostitute and adultery. Lin was being held in a brig in Chesapeake, Va.

U.S. Pacific Command covers the ocean, almost all of Asia from India to Japan, and Australia and New Zealand.
