OTTAWA, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- Jeffrey Delisle, a junior Canadian naval officer who sold military secrets to Russia, was sentenced Friday to 20 years in prison.

Delisle -- a 41-year-old sub-lieutenant who is the first person sentenced under Canada's Security of Information Act passed after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States -- will be given credit for 19 months he has been behind bars since his arrest, The Globe and Mail reported.

Patrick Curran, the Nova Scotia provincial chief judge who passed sentence on Delisle in Ottawa, also ordered Delisle to pay a fine of $111,000, the value of the money and other benefits he received from the Russians during the 4 1/2 years he provided them with information beginning in 2007, the Toronto newspaper said.

Delisle has 20 years to come up with the money.

Dressed in denim jeans and a blue hoodie, Delisle, whose mother, sister and daughter were in the courtroom, said nothing after the sentence was delivered, the newspaper said.
