No Sentence Yet for Convicted Professor Convicted of Export Control Violations

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports that no decision was made today during the sentencing hearing of University of Tennessee professor Emeritus J. Reece Roth who was convicted in September of various export control violations.

The article states that U.S. District Judge Tom Varlan spent the afternoon hearing testimony from the prosecutors and defense about the nature of the controlled technical data that was provided to foreign nationals. The article notes that Judge Varlan "said he'll decide on a sentence after considering the evidence and letting Roth speak for himself if he wants to." The date of the next sentencing hearing is likely to be set tomorrow.

Today's sentencing of Atmospheric Glow Technologies Inc., who was alleged to be Dr. Roth's coconspirator and which plead guilty to violating U.S. export control laws, has been rescheduled to a future date.
