All 10 Spies Plead Guilty

Spies, we hardly knew ye: The 10 people accused of spying for Russia have pleaded guilty to conspiracy to act as unregistered agents of a foreign country. The move is expected to expedite their return to Russia as part of a spy swap, but that plan has apparently hit a snag: NBC News says not all of the spies want to return to Russia and the futures of some of the accused spies’ American-born children are up in the air. Meanwhile, Igor Sutyagin, one of the four spies Russia will be returning to the United States, was seen getting off a plane in Vienna. An additional three Russian prisoners will also be released, along with their families, as part of the exchange.
