39194; Order Denying Export Privileges

    On February 6, 2012, in the U.S. District Court, Western District 
of Texas, Stephen Glen Guerra (``Guerra''), was convicted of violating 
Section 38 of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2778 (2006 & Supp. 
IV 2010)) (``AECA''). Specifically, Guerra was convicted of 
intentionally and knowingly conspiring with persons known and unknown 
to knowingly and willfully export and attempt to export to Mexico a 
defense article, that is to wit: several AK-47 type rifles and 
magazines, without having first obtained from the U.S. Department of 
State a license for such export or written authorization for such 
export. Guerra was sentenced to 60 months of imprisonment, three years 
of supervised release, a $1,000 criminal fine and an assessment of 
$100. Guerra is also listed on the U.S. Department of State Debarred 
List.
    Section 766.25 of the Export Administration Regulations (``EAR'' or 
``Regulations'') \1\ provides, in pertinent part, that ``[t]he Director 
of the Office of Exporter Services, in consultation with the Director 
of the Office of Export Enforcement, may deny the export privileges of 
any person who has been convicted of a violation of the Export 
Administration Act (``EAA''), the EAR, or any order, license or 
authorization issued thereunder; any regulation, license, or order 
issued under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 
1701-1706); 18 U.S.C. 793, 794 or 798; section 4(b) of the Internal 
Security Act of 1950 (50 U.S.C. 783(b)), or section 38 of the Arms

Section 11(h) of the EAA, 50 U.S.C. app. 2410(h). The denial of export 
privileges under this provision may be for a period of up to 10 years 
from the date of the conviction. 15 CFR 766.25(d); see also 50 U.S.C. 
app. 2410(h). In addition, Section 750.8 of the Regulations states that 
the Bureau of Industry and Security's Office of Exporter Services may

2401-2420 (2000)) (``EAA''). Since August 21, 2001, the EAA has been 
in lapse and the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 
17, 2001 (3 CFR, 2001 Comp. 783 (2002)), which has been extended by 
successive Presidential Notices, the most recent being that of

Regulations in effect under the International Emergency Economic 
Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701, et seq. (2006 & Supp. IV 2010)).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have received notice of Guerra's conviction for violating the 
AECA, and have provided notice and an opportunity for Guerra to make a 
written submission to BIS, as provided in Section 766.25 of the 
Regulations. I have not received a submission from Guerra. Based upon 
my review and consultations with BIS's Office of Export Enforcement, 
including its Director, and the facts available to BIS, I have decided 
to deny Guerra's export privileges under the Regulations for a period 
of 10 years from the date of Guerra's conviction. I have also decided 
to revoke all licenses issued pursuant to the Act or Regulations in 
which Guerra had an interest at the time of his conviction.
