On October 23, 2015, Mozaffar Khazaee, a former resident of Connecticut, was sentenced to 97 months in prison and ordered to pay a fine of $50,000 for violating the AECA. Specifically, a U.S. District Judge in Connecticut determined that between 2009 and 2013 Khazaee attempted to send to Iranian universities material relating to U.S. military jet engines. Such material is controlled under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations and was obtained by Khazaee through previous employment with multiple U.S. defense contractors. Khazaee was arrested in New York with the material prior to boarding a flight to Iran on January 9, 2014. He sought to export approximately 1,500 documents containing trade secrets and 600 documents containing highly sensitive defense technology involving the JSF Program, F-22 Raptor, V-22 Osprey, C130J Hercules and the Global Hawk engine programs. Khazaee pleaded guilty to the unlawful export of defense materials without an export license in violation of AECA.
