A former FBI agent who sold confidential information to a man bent on damaging the reputation of a Bangladeshi political rival was sentenced to five years in prison Monday, the New York Daily News. 

Robert Lustyik, 53, of Westchester County, New York, received tens of thousands of dollars in 2011 to sell the information.

Working for the counterintelligence squad at the FBI’s White Plains office, Lustyik had access to damaging documents.

“Robert Lustyik’s criminal conduct, driven by greed and corruption, displayed a disdain for the integrity for which the FBI stands,” Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said.

A former F.B.I. special agent has been accused of conspiring to sell confidential bureau documents to a Bangladeshi man who was seeking to harm the reputation of a political rival in his native country, authorities said Friday

The former agent, Robert Lustyik, was with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in late 2011 when he began plotting with a friend, Johannes Thaler, according to a criminal complaint unsealed on Friday in Federal District Court in White Plains, N.Y.

“I will work my magic …. We r sooooooo close,” Agent Lustyik wrote in an exchange of text messages with Mr. Thaler, the complaint said.

“I know,” Mr. Thaler replied. “It’s all right here in front of us. Pretty soon we’ll be having lunch in our oceanfront restaurant.”
