A U.S nuclear engineer is sentenced to two years in prison for allegedly selling secrets to China.
67-year-old Allen Ho — a naturalized U.S. citizen born in China — was charged with violating the Atomic Energy Act by helping China develop nuclear technology without permission from the U.S. government.
Though Ho pleaded guilty in January, his attorneys said he was not trying to help China develop nuclear weapons.
The federal government argues China can not be trusted with this type of sensitive information.
Ho must pay a $20,000 fine and serve one year of probation following his release.
