Prosecutors say that a US Military pilot offered military secrets to Chinese officials if they would break him out of jail after he was found guilty of producing child pornography.

“My country, that I have faithfully served since 2001, found me guilty of 31 felonies that I did not commit,” stated the letter allegedly written by Lt. Daniel Chase Harris. “And to make it worse they took my wife and children from me. So if they no longer believe in me, then I no longer believe in them.”

The details, first reported by The Virginian-Pilot, came to light in a July 6 document filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth Yusi in anticipation of Harris’ sentencing Monday.

“Mr. Harris denies sending the letter and is adamant about that,” said Andrew Sacks, Harris’ defense attorney. “He said he didn’t write it, didn’t send it, so we are in the process of investigating various aspects of that and interviewing witnesses from the jail that might shed light on this.”

Forensics show Harris wrote the letter, addressed to the Chinese Embassy in Washington, D.C., on the back of a 2013 flight schedule from Strike Fighter Weapons School Atlantic at Naval Air Station Oceana, VA.

The author identifies himself as Harris and offers to reveal “all of (his) knowledge” of just about every fighter jet, missile, and radar in the U.S. inventory. The writer also offered to share knowledge of pilot training, threat assessments and carrier operations. The letter included a map identifying his location in Western Tidewater Regional Jail in Suffolk, VA.

His convictions were the result of his posing online as a teenage boy to convince young teen girls to send risqué pictures. He then extorted the girls to send him additional, sexually explicit images and videos under the threat that he would otherwise post the initial images online or send them to family and friends.

The counts involved nine victims ranging in age from 12 to 17, but prosecutors called Harris “the victimizer and manipulator of hundreds of girls.”
