Motorola worker found guilty of stealing trade secrets

Hanjuan Jin tried to flee to China with more than a thousand Motorola documents

A judge in Chicago ruled this week that a former Motorola employee is guilty of trying to steal trade secrets from the company and flee to China.

On Feb. 28, 2007, U.S. Customs agents at O’Hare International Airport stopped Hanjuan Jin, a Chinese-born naturalized U.S. citizen, before she boarded a flight to China. Jin was holding a one-way ticket to her home country, as well as $30,000 in cash and more than a thousand Motorola documents, which agents found during a search.
