WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal judge has sentenced a businessman to 13 months in prison following his guilty plea in a scheme to illegally export computer parts to Iran.

The Justice Department says Massoud Habibion and his company, Online Micro LLC of Costa Mesa, Calif., conspired with a firm in the United Arab Emirates to export computer-related goods from the U.S. to Iran through Dubai in the UAE without first obtaining licenses from the U.S. government.

Habibion and another businessman, Mohsen Motamedian, also admitted they told a cooperating witness for the government to lie to U.S. law enforcement agents about Iran being the true destination for the goods. Motamedian was sentenced to three years of supervised release for obstruction of justice.
