(NPR) — Former Gen. David Petraeus, whose military career has been overshadowed by charges that he provided classified data to his mistress, has made a deal with the Justice Department in which he will plead guilty to one count of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material.
The charge's possible punishments include a fine and a maximum one-year prison sentence. We'll update this post when we have more information about the deal.
The plea agreement is one of several legal documents filed today in a U.S. District Court in North Carolina. News of the filings was passed to us by NPR's Carrie Johnson.
