PORTLAND, Oregon — A US federal judge on Tuesday sentenced the son of an imprisoned spy to five years of probation for helping his father contact his old Russian handlers in a scheme to collect money from them while behind bars.

Nathan Nicholson, son of ex-CIA agent Harold "Jim" Nicholson, had pleaded guilty to a pair of conspiracy charges and could have faced a prison term.

But federal prosecutors said the 26-year-old son helped them build a case against his father on charges that the older Nicholson used his son as a courier to contact Russian agents from prison so that he could try to get a "pension" from them.
