National Briefing | West: California: 'Falcon' Spy Released On Parole

Christopher Boyce, whose cold war spying was portrayed in the film ''The Falcon and the Snowman,'' was released after more than a quarter-century in prison. He will be on parole until 2046. Mr. Boyce was 22 when he got a summer job as a clerk at TRW Inc., where he had access to classified communications with the Central Intelligence Agency. He sold some of the documents to the Russian Embassy in Mexico City. He and a courier, his childhood friend Andrew Daulton Lee, were caught in 1976. Mr. Lee was paroled in 1998.
