John Reece Roth, 71, a prominent plasma physicist was sentenced to four years in prison for 18 counts of conspiracy, wire fraud and violations of the Arms Export Control Act, after he allowed a Chinese graduate student to see sensitive information on Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs), also known as drones.
Despite warnings from his University’s Export Control Officer, in 2006, he took a laptop containing sensitive plans with him on a lecture tour in China. He also allowed graduate students Xin Dai of China and Sirous Nourgostar of Iran to work on the project.

Roth has been under investigation by authorities, including the FBI, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigation, since at least May 2006 when Roth traveled to China, where he had close ties to two Chinese universities.
