Chinese spy gets 15 years for hurting space shuttle program: “The case against Dongfan ‘Greg’ Chung was the United States first trial on economic espionage charges.
The government accused Dongfan Chung, a stress analyst with high-level clearance, of using his 30-year career at Boeing and Rockwell International to steal the documents.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg Staples noted in sentencing papers that Chung amassed a personal wealth of more than $3 million while betraying his adopted country.
