According to Manhattan District Attorney’s office, the 42 year old has been charged in a County Court in New York, US with two counts of felonies of unlawful use of secret scientific material and duplication of computer-related material. Previously he was charged under National Stolen Property Act (NSPA) and the Economic Espionage Act (EEA). According to the US constitution, a person cannot be tried twice for the same alleged crime. But, Aleynikov has been charged under the New York laws that are different from federal acts.
