The former FBI analyst — Mark Tolson, 60, — pleaded guilty in a federal court in Alexandria, Va., in September to a misdemeanor charge of computer fraud and abuse, according to Politico.

Tolson said, with help from his wife Sarah Gilbert Fox, he accessed an email account belonging to GOP lobbyist Jack Burkman, photographed "emails of interest," and tried to hand them over both to the FBI and the press, The Washington Post reported. Fox had worked for Burkman from October 2017 to summer 2018 and had his email password, authorities said. She was not charged.

Sounds like the wife was just as guilty. I wonder why she wasn't charged?

Was he fired?

Is his jail time “with pay?”

A slap on the wrist unless he knows something and suffers from "Epstein level depression". In that case seven days could be a death sentence.

A lot can happen in seven days. Where is Epstein’s former cellmate now?

Using his wife’s job working for the lobbyist, too. I wonder if she is facing possible court problems for breach of contract for giving away her employer’s password?
