Chinese-born engineer Chi Mak "was sentenced [on 24 March 2008] to 24 1/2 years in federal prison" for conspiring to export U.S. defense technology to China.

"Mak's wife, Rebecca Laiwah Chiu, pleaded guilty last year ... to one count of acting as a foreign agent without registering with the U.S. government. She is serving three years in federal prison and will be deported upon release. His brother, Tai Mak, pleaded guilty last year to conspiring to violate export control laws in exchange for a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. Tai Mak's wife, Fuk Li, pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting the violation of export control laws and received three years of probation. Yui 'Billy' Mak, the son of Tai Mak and Fuk Li, pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting the violation of export control laws and was sentenced to time already served. The three will also be deported."
