Sentencing due in China military secrets case

HONOLULU — A former B-2 stealth bomber engineer convicted of selling military secrets to China is due to be sentenced in US federal court on Monday.
Noshir Gowadia, 66, faces up to life in prison for his conviction on 14 counts, including conspiracy, communicating national defense information to aid a foreign nation, and violating the arms export control act.
Chief US District Judge Susan Oki Mollway is due to issue her sentence after listening to arguments from the prosecution and defense. Gowadia, who has been in custody without bail since his 2005 arrest, is also expected to have an opportunity to make a statement.
A federal jury in August found Gowadia guilty after deliberating for six days. They had heard 39 days of evidence over nearly four months. The jury acquitted him on three counts.
