HAVANA - An American convicted of subversive acts in Cuba last year tried to keep his work undercover and was aware of its political aims, Cuban officials said in a leaked court document published this week.

Alan Gross, 62, has been jailed in Cuba since Dec. 3, 2009, and is serving a 15-year sentence for providing Internet gear to Cubans under a US program that Cuba views as subversive. Gross' attorney said he went to Cuba only to help the island's Jewish community, not for political purposes.

A leaked copy of an 18-page Cuban sentencing document came to light this week, providing details about Cuba's allegations and Gross' trial for the first time.
