Lee, an assistant U.S. attorney, said Sanders is scheduled to surrender in 30 days to begin serving the prison term.
Sanders, 37, of Lawrenceburg, Ky., was sentenced in U.S. District Court by Judge Charles J. Siragusa. He had faced a maximum term of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine on a conviction of conspiracy to commit trade secret theft.
Sanders admitted in January that he stole proprietary information from Corning Inc.'s Harrodsburg, Ky., plant on the process the company uses to manufacture liquid crystal display glass. He is a former Corning Inc. employee at Harrodsburg.
He sold the information to another defendant who provided it to a Taiwan company, Picvue Electronics, which was interested in competing with Corning Inc. in the liquid crystal display glass business.
The second defendant, Yeong C. Lin, 65, of Fountain Valley, Calif., faces a charge of theft of trade secrets. His next court appearance in Rochester is scheduled for May 23. Lin worked as a consultant for Picvue Electronics.
