Chinese-born American From Motorola Gets 4 Years For Trade Secrets Theft

wrekkuh (2647839) writes "Hanjuan Jin, a naturalized US citizen working as a software engineer for Motorola, was stopped during a random security search at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport on Feb. 28th, 2007, before she could board a one-way flight to China. On her person she had $31,000, a laptop, and various data storage devices (four external hard drives and several thumb drives). Upon further inspection of her data, customs agents had found hundreds of confidential Motorola documents, documents from a military contractor for the chinese military, and documents from the chinese military itself.

In the judgement from earlier this year, Jin was found guilty of three counts of stealing trade secrets but acquitted of the more serious charges of economic espionage on behalf of the Chinese government. She has been given a four-year prison sentence, and must also serve three years’ supervised release and pay $20,000"
