The New York Times reports government officials say they intend to fire a Chinese-American hydrologist who was prosecuted but eventually cleared of espionage-related charges. The hydrologist, Sherry Chen, an employee of the National Weather Service, received a letter over Labor Day weekend notifying her that the government planned to fire her for many of the same reasons it originally prosecuted her. Last year, federal agents investigated Mrs. Chen as a possible Chinese spy. They found no evidence of espionage, but still arrested her on lesser charges that could have led to 25 years in prison and $1 million in fines. The Justice Department ultimately dropped the case.
