((Lawyers for accused FBI spy Richard Hanssen are expected to get their first detailed look at the evidence against him next week...and so far are insisting there will be no quick plea bargain.

(SOT/Plato Cacheris, March 5)

"This is just a detention hearing, but he will plead not guilty at the appropriate time."
NARR: Looking as if he'd hardly slept since his arrest, Hanssen appeared briefly in court earlier this week....but has since been left in isolation except for meetings with his family and attorneys. Looming over the case is the government's threat to seek the death penalty....but former prosecutors say it wasn't until after the Aldrich Aimes spy case in 1994 that the U.S. instituted the death penalty for espionage...and most of Hanssen's alleged treachery may have taken place before then.

(SOT/Mark Hulkower)

"If there wasn't a death penalty at the time he committed the most serious acts of espionage that would make him eligable for that, then there's a grave constitutional question as to whether the death penalty is available."

(ON CAMERA BRIDGE:)

A far more likely scenario is that this case will end up in a deal. Hanssen will get to live.....and in exchange spell out for his old colleagues in the FBI every secret he allegedly sold the Russians.
NARR: They already suspect he gave up numerous eavesdropping techniques...but there's a large black hole that stretchs from 1991, when Hanssen seemingly stopped spying, until 1999 when he reemerged. Perhaps, investigators suggest, he was spooked by the disintigration of the old Soviet Union. Whatever the reason, the FBI is eager to fill in the blanks.

(SOT/Hulkower)


"I think Hanssen still has the same leverage that any espionage defendant has, and that is that the one thing the government always wants to know is what was given over."

(NARR:)

If he does agree to talk, Hanssen will probably be kept here, at the medium security federal prison in Allenwood, Pa...and spend his time alongside Allenwood's other famous spies like Edward Wilson...John Walker...and Aldrich Aimes...all of whom will likely spend most of the rest of their lives there.
