SCRANTON - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced today that Mark Komoroski, age 57, of Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, was sentenced on February 14, 2020, to seven months’ imprisonment to be followed by two years’ supervised release, by United States District Court Judge Malachy E. Mannion, for violating federal export laws.

According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, Komoroski previously pleaded guilty to violating the International Emergency Economic Powers Act and related regulations.  Komoroski admitted that in early 2016, he attempted to export two riflescopes to an individual in Russia even though he knew that the export licenses required by federal law had not been obtained. 

This case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations and the Department of Commerce.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Carlo D. Marchioli is prosecuting the case.
