The John Ambrose trial - the case of a former deputy U.S. Marshal who
was accused of leaking information to the Chicago Outfit - has come to an end and Ambrose has been found guilty of one count of theft of information and one count of illegal disclosure of information; he was also acquitted on two charges of lying to federal authorities.
Ambrose leaked secret government information about Nicholas Calabrese, who cooperated with government officials in the Family Secrets trials, that wound up in the hands of other mob members. Prosecutors alleged this is the first time such a leak has happened in the history of the Witness Protection Program. No word of Ambrose's sentencing date.
