HONOLULU — A military jury on Friday convicted a Hawaii-based Army officer of unauthorized possession of classified documents and giving a document with classified assessments of Cambodia to a person not entitled to have it.

A jury sentenced Maj. Seivirak Inson to 10 years confinement, along with dismissal from the Army and forfeiture of pay, the Army said.

A panel of seven Army officers returned the verdict against Inson after a four-day court martial at Wheeler Army Airfield.

The jurors convicted Inson, who was born in Cambodia, of possessing a U.S. Pacific Command maritime strategy document and other military intelligence documents that he wasnít authorized to have.

They found him guilty of failing to report to his chain of command contacts he had with Cambodian military and government officials.

His other convictions were for adultery and fraudulently signing a bank document.

Inson was acquitted of collecting information on service members of Cambodian descent with the intention of giving the information to Cambodian military and government officials.

He was also found not guilty of unlawfully striking an individual and choking a person.

Inson was assigned to the U.S. Pacific Command at the time of the alleged crimes, from 2008 through 2012. Inson is currently with the 8th Theater Sustainment Command at Fort Shafter.
