  • Former Sandia scientist pleads guilty to transporting government property to China

     Jianyu Huang, a scientist formerly employed by Sandia Corporation at Sandia National Laboratories pleaded guilty this afternoon to making a false statement and unlawfully transporting converted government property in interstate and foreign commerce.
    The guilty plea was announced by U.S. Attorney Damon P. Martinez and Special Agent in Charge Carol K.O. Lee of the FBI’s Albuquerque Division.
    Huang, 46, a naturalized U.S. citizen from the People’s Republic of China who resides in Albuquerque was arrested in June 2012, on a six-count indictment charging him with misusing U.S. government resources and equipment to conduct research for Chinese research institutions and with falsely stating that he did not intend to take U.S. government equipment with him on a trip to China. The indictment subsequently was superseded to add an interstate transportation of converted property charge and a theft of government property charge. Huang was employed by Sandia until his employment was terminated in late April 2012.
