The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued an order suspending for ten years the export privileges of a California man convicted of knowingly and willfully exporting caliber rifles to Mexico without the required State Department license or written authorization. As a result, until May 5, 2014, neither this man nor anyone on his behalf may directly or indirectly participate in any way in any transaction involving any commodity, software or technology exported or to be exported from the U.S. that is subject to the Export Administration Regulations.

BIS is also revoking all export licenses in which this man had an interest at the time of his conviction. He is currently serving a 46-month prison sentence and has also been sentenced to 36 months of supervised release and a $100 assessment.
