Rug store owner Reza Safarha sentenced for violating Iran Trade embargo

A rug store owner convicted of violating the Iran Trade embargo was sentenced Friday to a relatively light 10 months in prison.

Reza Safarha, 56, helped a government informant send nearly $300,000 of what he thought was stolen money to Iran.

Safarha faced as much as 20 years in prison after he was convicted in a bench trial before Federal District Judge Richard Sullivan in February. Federal guidelines called for him to be sentenced to as much as eight years.
