HONOLULU — A Hawaii-based Army officer convicted of unauthorized possession of classified documents acknowledges that he improperly took home a folder.

But Maj. Seivirak Inson said that’s routine among fellow officers and that he was shocked when he was charged.

Besides unauthorized possession of classified documents, Inson last week was convicted of giving a document with classified assessments of Cambodia to a person not entitled to have it.

He was sentenced to 10 years’ confinement, dismissal from the Army and forfeiture of pay.

Inson tells KITV-TV that his loyalty to the United States runs deep and that he will seek clemency.

Inson has more than 20 years of military service, including 14 as an intelligence officer and two combat tours.

He said he considers the 10-year prison term extremely harsh.
