Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - Milwaukee Wisconsin -

CINCIN­NATI – A Chi­nese na­tional charged with try­ing to steal trade se­crets from mul­ti­ple U.S. avi­a­tion and aero­space com­pa­nies has pleaded not guilty.

Prose­cu­tors al­lege Yan­jun Xu, be­gin­ning in De­cem­ber 2013, re­cruited ex­perts who worked at avi­a­tion com­pa­nies, in­clud­ing GE Avi­a­tion. They say Xu and oth­ers would pay stipends for the ex­perts to travel to China un­der the guise of de­liv­er­ing a univer­sity pre­sen­ta­tion.
