PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A judge in Portland has reduced the probation period for Nathan Nicholson who helped his father spy for Russia.
Federal Judge Anna Brown noted the "exemplary performance" of Nathan Nicholson on Tuesday as she knocked a year off his five-year probation period so it will end in December 2014.
Nicholson was sentenced to probation in 2010 for conspiring with his father, Harold "Jim" Nicholson, an ex-CIA officer who was sentenced to 24 years in prison for his 1997 espionage conviction.
Nathan Nicholson pleaded guilty to acting as an agent of a foreign government at his father's bidding.
Now 29, he graduated last spring from Oregon State University. He has agreed that profits from a possible movie about his life story would go to the U.S. government.
