Knoxville News Sentinel Covering Arms Export Control Act Trial of Professor Roth

The Knoxville News Sentinel is providing good coverage of the trial of University of Tennessee Professor Emeritus J. Reece Roth who is accused of violating Arms Export Control Act by providing a Chinese graduate student with technical data subject to the ITAR. The trial started Monday is expected to last nearly two weeks.

According to today's report, former Atmospheric Glow Technologies Inc. (AGT) employee, Daniel Sherman, who pleaded guilty in April to charges of conspiring with Roth to export the data to China and is a key witness for the prosecution, was on the stand and he provided testimony that was both favorable and unfavorable to Roth. Sherman also testified that he "lied to federal authorities in the early stages of the probe" at the request of AGT's management.

AGT pleaded guilty last week to ten counts of unlawfully exporting "defense articles" to a Chinese citizen in violation of the Arms Export Control Act.
