John Kiriakou was previously arrested, and charged via criminal complaint, on grounds relating to disclosure of classified information. He has now been indicted (see attached). I believe the charges are the same as before, except there are now three rather than two counts of violating the Espionage Act through illegal disclosure of national defense information to unauthorized persons.
