San Antonio Businessman Sentenced to Two Years in Prison for Allegedly Attempting to Export ITAR Controlled Items

Yet another individual has been sentenced to prison for attempting to export items subject to the ITAR without the required State Department export license.

In the latest in a growing number of cases, the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Texas announced today that a San Antonio businessman was sentenced to two years in federal prison and three years probation after pleading guilty to one count of violating the Arms Export Control Act.

The defendant, who was in the business of purchasing surplus Department of Defense equipment and then reselling it, admitted that he sold one, and subsequently attempted to sell three more, Naval Radar Control Unit parts, also known as a Sensitivity Time Control Generator Assembly, for approximately $6,500 each to an undercover U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent.

The undercover agent told Silcox he was a broker for a buyer in the United Arab Emirates and inquired as to how Silcox would get the export license. The defendant admitted that he knew he needed an export license, however, he never attempted to obtain the license and used false information on the shipping labels to disguise the actual contents.

You have brought up very good details, appreciate it for the post.
