New York resident, Jeng "Jay" Shih, was sentenced to 18 months’ imprisonment and his company, Sunrise Technologies and Trading Corporation, was sentenced to 24 months’ corporate probation on February 17, 2012, after having pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court the previous October to conspiring to illegally export U.S.-origin computers to Iran. From 2007 through April 2011, Shih and Sunrise conspired with a company operating in Dubai and Tehran, whose primary business involved purchasing U.S.-origin computer equipment on behalf of Iranian customers, to illegally export computer equipment controlled for anti-terrorism reasons to Iran without the required export licenses. A civil settlement with the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control requires Shih and his company forfeit $1.25 million. According to a related agreement with the U.S. Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security, Shih and his company will also be denied export privileges for ten years if any further violations occur during a ten-year probationary period.
