Criminal Defense Attorneys Serving All Areas of Louisiana


Retired Dow Chemical Company research scientist Wen Chyu Liu of Baton Rouge was sentenced last week to five years in federal prison for his conviction on charges that he stole trade secrets from Dow’s Plaquemine plant and sold them to companies in China for $600,000.

Liu denied, as he did at trial in February, that he committed that crime.

Two other former employees at Dow’s Plaquemine, Louisiana plant pleaded guilty to related charges in the case and testified against Liu. One was sentenced to one year of probation and the other to two years of probation.

Dow estimates that Liu caused the firm to lose more than $250 million.

If you are facing federal charges, you need a lawyer with experience handling white-collar crimes in Louisiana.  Contact Baton Rouge Criminal Attorney Carl Barkemeyer.
