Change of plea hearing set in sensor case

Posted: Updated:

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A change of plea hearing has been scheduled for a Chinese national accused of trying to smuggle sensors made for the U.S. military.

Bo Cai, who previously pleaded not guilty, is set to appear before a federal magistrate judge in Albuquerque on July 23.

Court documents say 28-year-old Cai and 29-year-old Wentong Cai were arrested on charges of smuggling goods and violating the Arms Export Control Act, which makes a license necessary to ship certain items to China, Syria and Sudan.

Authorities say the suspects met with an undercover agent about buying the sensors made in New Mexico for military guidance systems.

Prosecutors declined comment on whether any agreements have been reached in the case.

Richard Pugh, an attorney for Bo Cai, did not immediately return a phone message.
