So I still need to confirm about whether it's the same Stan Greenberg.

But the one involved in racketeering: Stan Greenberg pled guilty to conspiring to commit racketeering on October 22, 2013, and was sentenced on May 2, 2014. Greenberg, 48, of New York, New York, faces a maximum of 20 years in prison and three years of supervised release.

And yet another Stan Greenberg... Stanley Greenberg's involvement with Russians goes way back.. 1986

Declaring that espionage must not be taken lightly, a Federal judge today sentenced Richard W. Miller, the first F.B.I. agent ever charged with the crime, to two concurrent life sentences for spying for the Soviet Union.

The judge, David Z. Kenyon, also sentenced the 49-year-old former agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to an additional 50 years to run concurrently with his life terms.

Mr. Miller's lawyers, Joel Levine and Stanley Greenberg, have said they will seek to have the conviction overturned on the basis of rulings in favor of the prosecution made by Judge Kenyon in the trial. Judge Kenyon, in comments from the bench, defended his handling of the case as evenhanded, and added that he had gone out of his way to assure that the defense lawyers, who were chosen by Mr. Miller but were compensated by the court, were paid enough to insure their participation in both of Mr. Miller's trials.

The judge also noted that he had scheduled Mr. Miller's accused co-conspirators, Svetlana and Nikolay Ogorodnikov, to be tried first. He called that ruling ''a great advantage'' to the defense lawyers because it gave them a chance to try out Mr. Miller's effectiveness on the witness stand and to do so under immunity. The defense lawyers did not call Mr. Miller to testify at his own trials.
