As with the Rosenbergs, he claimed to be innocent and his case became a cause among several left-wing intellectuals. Convicted on similar charges, Sobell was sentenced to a 30-year prison term, but was released after serving 18 years. In 2008 he admitted that he and Julius Rosenberg were guilty of some of the charges against them and said Ethel Rosenberg was not a spy.
