One of the five Cuban spies in the group known as the “Cuban 5″ spy ring convicted in Miami is set to be released next month from a federal prison in Arizona.
Fernando Gonzalez, 50, known in the U.S. as Ruben Campa, is set for release on Feb. 27, according to U.S. Bureau of Prisons records.
Gonzalez had his 19-year sentenced reduced on appeal and because of good behavior.
The five were convicted in 2001, for spying on U.S. military installation in South Florida, Cuban exile groups and politicians opposed to Cuba’s communist government.
Free The Five spokeswoman Gloria La Riva said Tuesday that Gonzalez will wind up serving just over 15 years. She said he will likely be deported to Cuba.
The five are considered heroes in Cuba.
Another Cuban Five member, Rene Gonzalez, was released in 2011.
