New details released about Soldier who sold secrets to China

By Andy Wolf

New details have emerged in the case surrounding an American Soldier who reportedly sold US secrets to China. Wearing a green jumpsuit, Sgt. Korbein Schultz made a court appearance on Friday, and a judge ruled Schultz would remain in the custody of the United States Marshals Service.

Schultz is accused of willingly selling American secrets to the Chinese Communist Party, including classified documents related to Air Force tactics and techniques for fighter aircraft, data on helicopters, and other documents concerning intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Schultz was previously assigned to Fort Cavazos in Texas and deployed to Eastern Europe prior to being assigned to Kentucky’s Fort Campbell, where he trained others in the handling, circulation, and storage of classified and controlled unclassified information.

The price of betraying his loyalty to his country?

A mere $42,000, made in fourteen trackable installments. In total, he received 14 payments between between June 2022 and October 2023.

To put such a paltry sum into perspective, the amount is not even enough to purchase a mid-tier trim 2024 Toyota Tacoma, which is currently going for nearly $48,000 before taxes.

Prosecutors told WKRN that his next court appearance will either be a plea or a trial and that the dates for those aforementioned appearances have yet to be released.
