Freed Cuban spy wants to serve probation in Cuba
The Associated Press
MIAMI -- A convicted Cuban spy who finished his U.S. prison time is
again asking a federal judge to allow him to return to Cuba to serve
The attorney for Rene Gonzalez says in recent court papers that he has
complied with all probation requirements since his October release from
prison. Gonzalez served about 13 years for his role in a ring that
prosecutors say spied on Cuban exiles and tried to infiltrate military
bases and political bases.
Gonzalez and four others still imprisoned are known as the "Cuban Five"
and celebrated as heroes in Cuba.
Gonzalez has served about eight months of his three years' probation.
His attorney says he wants to return to resume a normal life and be
close to his wife and daughters.
