10 Defendants Plead Guilty in Russian Spy Case

(NECN/AP: Leslie Gaydos) - Ten defendants accused of spying for Russia have told a federal judge in New York that they are pleading guilty.

The judge sentenced the defendants in to time served and ordered them deported.

Two Obama administration sources say the Russian government will release four people in the spy swap with the United States.

An Obama administration official and an administration source both spoke on condition of anonymity because papers in the spy case are in the process of being publicly released. They would not disclose the names of those being released by Russia.
