WASHINGTON: A Navy officer facing espionage charges for allegedly handing military secrets to Taiwan and China was entrapped in a “nefarious scheme” by government agents, his lawyer argued in a testimony made public Thursday. Prosecutors say Lieutenant Commander Edward Lin—a decorated Navy veteran—committed a string of offenses including espionage, mishandling classified information and failing to follow lawful orders. He is also accused of adultery and using a prostitute.
