BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 16 – Meyya Meyyappan was a scientist at U.S. NASA, but he secretly worked with and for the People's Republic of China's "Thousand Talents Program," and Soochow University.      

       On June 16, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge P. Kevin Castel held a sentencing proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

   Meyyappan's lawyer said his client hadn't meant to lie, or wouldn't have, if he had a lawyer with him. Judge Castel asked how it was that Meyyappan now has a net worth over $6 million.

His lawyer said, He works 80 hours a week.   Judge Castel issued a sentence of 30 days, which was quickly announced by the US Attorney's Office press office.

The sentence will not begin until May 2022.

The case is US v. Meyyappan, 21-cr-22 (Castel).
