Chi Mak's Brother Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison

Tai Mak, the younger brother of convicted spy Chi Mak, was sentenced on Monday to 10 years in federal prison, the maximum prison sentence under the Arms Export Control Act ( 22 U.S.C. § 2778(c))

Tai Mak pleaded guilty in June 2007 to conspiring to export defense articles after his brother was convicted of conspiracy to export defense articles, operating as an agent of a foreign government and lying to a federal agent. The Los Angeles Times reported that the "probation report recommended a prison term of 6 1/2 years for Tai Mak, but U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney said a longer sentence was appropriate because the technical information he attempted to export, although unclassified, was sensitive nonetheless."
