    Taking work-related documents home to study might get you a promotion and pay raise at some jobs, but not when your employer is the National Security Agency (NSA) – and most certainly not when those materials are classified. Former NSA employee Nghia Hoang Pho, 68 – a naturalized US citizen who was originally from Vietnam but who’d been living in Ellicott City, Maryland – was sentenced last week to 66 months in prison plus three years of supervised release for willful retention of classified national defense information.
