A New Jersey man who lied while seeking a federal security clearance was sentenced last week to six months in prison and an additional two years of probation. Fred Arena, 42, was applying for the security clearance and did not disclose his ties to Vanguard America, a white supremacist group. When federal agents alter asked him about the ties, he lied, U.S. attorney for the Eastern Pennsylvania District William M. McSwain said. Arena pleaded guilty in December to lying to federal authorities and was sentenced to six months in prison. He had already served four months in custody after getting arrested in October, so he will only serve another two months behind bars. When he gets out, he will be on probation for two years, NJ.com reported.
