The Reece Roth story has now made national news:

Prof Accused of Passing Drone Tech to China

Just for clarification, Roth is not accused of passing classified information. Rather, he is accused of passing information controlled by International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), which governs the export of munitions and technical data and knowledge related to munitions. The regulations, administered by the Department of State’s Office of Defense Trade Controls, are notoriously hard to decipher, even for experienced export control officials. For universities, it has been even harder.
