Naum Morgovsky and Irina Morgovsky were sentenced following their guilty pleas for conspiracy to illegally export components for the production of night-vision and thermal devices to Russia in violation of the Arms Export Control Act, and for laundering the proceeds of the scheme.  The defendants purchased products using their U.S. business, Hitek International, representing that the products would not be exported.  The couple then shipped the products to Moscow-based Infratech using a variety of front companies and shipping methods.  They were sentenced to 108 months and 18 months, respectively, were assessed a $1 million fine, and forfeited $223 thousand.  DOJ
