was convicted of espionage, for having sold state secrets to a foreign nation over the course of several years. Since exactly what secrets he sold is unknown it is odd how you can know that it did not damage the US, I would however say that the information about the RASIN (the US global surveilance network) could have been a little bit harmful... Apart from all that he attempted to sell information to South Africa (that's the Apartheid SA btw) and Pakistan and he also used classified information for the financial benefit of himself, his wife and his friends. Gee I wonder why he's in prison...
