MIAMI — A convicted Cuban spy who finished his U.S. prison time is again asking a federal judge to allow him to return to Cuba to serve probation.
The attorney for Rene Gonzalez says in recent court papers that he has complied with all probation requirements since his October release from prison. Gonzalez served about 13 years for his role in a ring that prosecutors say spied on Cuban exiles and tried to infiltrate military bases and political bases.
Gonzalez and four others still imprisoned are known as the “Cuban Five” and celebrated as heroes in Cuba.
Gonzalez has served about eight months of his three years’ probation. His attorney says he wants to return to resume a normal life and be close to his wife and daughters.
