Sub-Lt. Jeffrey Delisle, the Halifax naval officer who sold secrets to Russia, has been given a 20-year prison sentence.

But Judge Patrick Curran said Delisle will serve 18 years and five months behind bars because of time he has already served.

Delisle, 41, was also fined over $111,000, equal to what investigators say he received from the Russians. He has 20 years to pay.

Delisle is the first person to be sentenced under Canada’s Security of Information Act.

He pleaded guilty last October to one count of breach of trust and two charges of passing information to a foreign entity that could harm Canada’s interest.
