Sentencing of Atmospheric Glow Technologies, Inc. Now Set for November 23rd

The often delayed sentencing of Atmospheric Glow Technologies, Inc. (AGT), the company alleged to be Professor John Reece Roth's co-conspirator in the criminal case involving unlawful exports of ITAR controlled technology, has now been set for November 23, 2009 before U.S. District Judge Varlan in Knoxville, Tennessee.

As has been widely reported, AGT plead guilty in August 2008 to 10 counts of unlawfully exporting defense articles to a citizen of the People’s Republic of China in violation of the Arms Export Control Act.

AGT, which filed for bankruptcy in 2008, was a privately held plasma technology company formed in 2000 as a spin-off of the University of Tennessee's Plasma Sciences Laboratory. Professor Roth, who was an original shareholder of AGT, was hired by AGT to work on the U.S. Air Force plasma technology contract that led to the violations of U.S. export control laws that resulted in criminal proceedings against AGT, Roth and Daniel Max Sherman, a physicist who formerly worked at AGT and was trained by Roth. In July of this year Roth was sentenced to serve 48 months in prison and Sherman received a prison sentence of 14 months in August.
