Convicted spy John A. Walker Jr.'s two-story house, two boats, a car and other property will be auctioned in Norfolk, Va., Dec. 10, the Internal Revenue Service said. The IRS seized Walker’s property in June, 1985, for non-payment of taxes. Walker, 49, was arrested on espionage charges in May, 1985. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life imprisonment. The retired Navy chief warrant officer recruited his brother, son and a former Navy buddy to sell secrets to the Soviet Union in what Navy officials said was the most damaging spy ring in U.S. history.
