The latest verdict found him guilty of committing perjury during the sentencing in his previous case.

A federal jury determined German lied when he gave testimony that he denied having copied more than 15,000 proprietary engineering drawings and documents onto a removable storage device while he was employed at an aircraft manufacturing company.

The jury also found that German was guilty of providing a materially false statement to the FBI during a voluntary meeting.

German faces up to five years in federal prison for each charge. 

In February 2020, German received a 70-month sentence after pleading guilty to one count of Conspiracy to Steal Trade Secrets.
