Soldier pleads innocent to peddling top-secret photos
HARRISBURG, Pa. -- A soldier accused of offering photographs of a top-secret military facility to a Philadelphia newspaper pleaded innocent Tuesday and his lawyer said he hoped to reach a plea bargain.
Army Spc. Maurice Threats, 22, of Cascade, Md., is charged with peddling photos of the Alternate Joint Communications Center, a facility widely known as Site R. The center is inside a hollowed-out granite mountain near the Pennsylvania-Maryland line, and is one of several relocation sites for government leaders during national emergencies. It was designed to withstand a nuclear attack.
Magistrate Judge J. Andrew Smyser scheduled trial for Dec. 10, but Threats' court-appointed attorney, Thomas Thornton, said he wanted a plea agreement. Thornton said he had not seen the photos but has been told they are no more revealing than photos made public by others.
