Cuban Five Member Has Sentence Reduced, Could Be Out of Jail in Seven Years
Guerrero was convicted of spying for the Cuban government after trying to break into a U.S. military facility in the Florida Keys and spying on Miami's anti-Castro exile community. He's been in U.S. custody since 1998.
The harsher sentence was overturned today in a U.S. Appeals Court and is the latest episode in a long legal saga. Supporters said the Five's original trial wasn't valid because Miami's exile community would prevent a fair trial.
Three of the original 2001 sentences were overturned last year. Resentencing for the other two has been postponed.
