CBS Miami

MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) —One of the five Cuban spies in the group known as the “Cuban 5” spy ring convicted in the U.S.  is set to be released next month  from a Federal Prison in Arizona.

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.

U.S. Bureau of Prisons records show that 50-year-old Fernando Gonzalez — known in the U.S. as Ruben Campa — is set for release on Feb. 27. Gonzalez had his 19-year sentenced reduced on appeal and because of good behavior.

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.

They are considered heroes in Cuba.

Cuban Five member Rene Gonzalez was released in 2011.
