MIAMI (AP) - A second man has pleaded guilty in Miami federal court to charges of scheming to illegally export military aircraft parts to Iran.

Traian Bujduveanu (Tray-‘ANN Booj-doo-‘VAY-nu) pleaded guilty Thursday to a single conspiracy count. He acted as his own lawyer and faces up to five years in federal prison when sentenced June 11. He’s a naturalized U.S. citizen originally from Romania.

Iranian-born Hassan Keshari previously pleaded guilty. Prosecutors said both men were illegally helping Iran obtain parts for such aircraft as the F-14 Tomcat fighter, C-130 cargo plane and AH-1 attack helicopter. The parts were shipped from South Florida to Dubai and on to Iran.

Keshari also faces up to five years in prison.
