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. Nino was sentenced to 
72 months of imprisonment, three years of supervised release, a $1,000 
criminal fine and an assessment of $100. Nino is also listed on the
