A former employee of American Superconductor's Austrian subsidiary has pleaded guilty to charges of passing confidential material to Sinovel Wind Group. A judge in Klagenfurt, Austria, sentenced Dejan Karabasevic to one year in jail and two years probation, and required him to pay about $270,000 in damages to AMSC. "This individual's admittance of guilt and collusion with Sinovel demonstrates the strength of our commercial, civil and criminal cases against Sinovel in China," said AMSC spokesman Jason Fredette.
