TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - An Iranian scientist imprisoned in the U.S. and acquitted in a federal trade secrets case returned to his homeland on Wednesday morning, a semiofficial Iranian news agency reported.
The report by the ISNA news agency included an image of Sirous Asgari, wearing a face mask and being welcomed by relatives.
A professor at Iran’s Sharif University of Technology, Asgari was indicted in April 2016, accused by U.S. federal prosecutors of trying to steal secret research from Case Western Reserve University. The Cleveland school had been working on a project for the U.S. Navy Office of Naval Research to create and produce anti-corrosive stainless steel.

Asgari was ultimately acquitted in November after U.S. District Judge James Gwin tossed out the case by the prosecutors.
