MIDLAND, MI (WNEM)--One former Dow Chemical scientist admits to stealing secrets from the Dow Chemical Company.

Next month, Huang Kexue will plead guilty to charges of illegally sending trade secrets worth $300,000,000 to China and Germany.

Kexue also obtained grants from a state-run foundation in China in hopes of starting up a rival business.

Now, he could face up to 15 years in prison if the judge accepts his plea.
