September 12, 1998: The FBI arrested 10 of the 40+ Cuban Intelligence officers and agents in the Wasp Network. Additional members of this spy ring, which stretched from New York City to the capital of Mexico, were arrested over the following years. Most of those arrested accepted plea agreements and testified against their former colleagues. The five holdouts, many of whom were Wasp Network leaders, were convicted on numerous charges. Several received life sentences for their crimes.
