US Engineer Gets 24 Years for Exporting Military Data to China

China-born engineer has been sentenced to 24 years for spying for China, according to AFP:

Chi Mak, who worked for a US company with several Navy contracts, was convicted last May of trying to export intelligence about silent submarines in a plot that involved four members of his family.

Mak, whose age was given as 65 by justice officials, was also fined 50,000 dollars by US District Judge Cormac Carney, who said the lengthy sentence was intended to send a message to China’s intelligence services…

He was found guilty of two counts of attempting to send sensitive material to China, acting as a foreign agent without notifying the US government and making false statements to federal agents.
