- a man convicted of knowingly and willfully attempting to export a night vision device and rifle scope to Jordan without the required licenses (ten-year suspension; previously sentenced to 30 months in prison, 36 months of supervised release, a $100 assessment, and $372,505 in restitution to the U.S. Postal Service)

- a woman convicted of knowingly and willfully exporting and aiding the export of firearms to Mexico without the required licenses (five-year suspension; previously sentenced to five years of probation and a $100 assessment)

- a man convicted of knowingly and willfully attempting to export fighter jet wheel assemblies to Hong Kong without the required licenses (ten-year suspension; previously sentenced to three years of probation, a $10,000 criminal fine, and a $100 assessment)

- a man convicted of intentionally and knowingly conspiring to export firearms to Mexico without the required licenses (ten-year suspension; previously sentenced to 60 months in prison and a $200 special assessment)

As a result, for five or ten years from their respective convictions neither these individuals nor anyone on their 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 these individuals had an interest at the time of their convictions.
