Feds oppose release of contractor accused of trying to ship US military jet documents to Iran

Federal prosecutors say a former defense contractor engineer charged with trying to ship sensitive military documents to Iran last year had already provided people in the country with information about a U.S. Air Force fighter jet program.

Prosecutors made the assertion in response to a request by Mozaffar Khazaee to be released from prison while he awaits trial. Prosecutors objected, saying he's a flight risk and a danger to the United States.

Khazaee's attorney says he has no criminal record, is not a flight risk and did not believe any materials he took to Iran involved sensitive information.

A detention hearing is planned Wednesday afternoon.

Khazaee pleaded not guilty in February to charges of transporting property stolen from companies where he'd worked, including jet engine maker Pratt & Whitney.
