Wayne Simmons may not be an expert, but he played one on TV. Now he’s going to jail for it.
Wayne Simmons of Annapolis, Maryland, portrayed himself as an "outside paramilitary special operations officer" for the Central Intelligence Agency from 1973 to 2000.
He allegedly tried to use that claim to get government security clearances and work as a defence contractor.
