insecticides to China.

Kexue Huang faces a dozen counts of economic espionage to benefit a 
foreign government or instrumentality, as well as five counts of 
interstate or foreign transport of stolen property.

Assistant US Attorney Scott Garland said only six or seven people had 
ever been charged with the crime. He said the value of the information 
that Huang allegedly passed on exceeded $100 million.

The allegations mainly concern the period from January 2003 to February
