Treason is defined as the betrayal of one's own country by waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies. Under Article III, Section 3, of the… Constitution, any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them aid and comfort (that is, furnishing enemies with arms, troops, transportation, shelter, or classified information) has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution. The treason clause applies only during times of war. Also, a person can not be charged with treaty if he or she has committed the act on behalf of an ally. For example Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were convicted of espionage, in 1951, for helping the Soviet Union steal atomic secrets from the United States during World War II. The Rosenbergs were not tried for treason because the United States and the Soviet Union were allies during World War II. If a person unwittingly or unintentionally gives aid and comfort to an enemy of the United States during wartime, treason has not occurred. Similarly, a person who pursues a course of action that is intended to benefit the United States but mistakenly helps an enemy is not guilty of treason. Treason is punishable by death. If a death sentence is not imposed, defendants face a minimum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Also, a person who has been convicted of treason can not hold a federal office.
