A whistleblower who leaked top secret information about America’s drone warfare program has been sentenced to 45 months in federal prison.

Daniel Hale, 33, who formerly worked as an intelligence analyst for the U.S. Air Force, pled guilty in March to retaining and transmitting national defense information. He was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Va. by Judge Liam O’Grady on Tuesday.

In 2014, Hale leaked more than 150 pages of classified material to a journalist, revealing details about the government’s unmanned aerial vehicle operations. Hale took the documents from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, where he was working as a contractor at the time.

While it has never been officially admitted, Politico reports that “details about Hale’s activities and the records he leaked make clear that the reporter was Jeremy Scahill of the Intercept.” Documents that Hale leaked were subsequently cited in The Drone Papers,
