“This office will not tolerate anybody who, by their actions, hurts or impact the products used by our military men and women to carry out their critical mission,” U.S. Attorney William Hochul said. “This case should serve as a warning to any individual involved in the testing of products to be used by the military, if you attempt to disrupt the process, you will be prosecuted and punished accordingly.”
