What sinister dealings did Mohammad Alavi commit?

Received by email via Israel Lives:

We have more information on the traitor who passed classified nuclear information to Iran. The nuclear engineer allegedly responsible for passing classified information to Iran is Mohammad Alavi, age 49. The allegations center on former Palo Verde engineer who is accused in a recently unsealed federal affidavit of traveling to Tehran last year and downloading, from a Maryland-based Palo Verde vendor, software that contained details of the plant. Those included information about control rooms, reactors and design. The software was used to simulate situations for training.

Should he be convicted, will his sentence exceed Pollard’s who is now serving his 23d year in prison?
