Arms Export Control Act Conviction

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of California issued a press release here regarding an individual who was convicted of "four counts of Exporting Defense Articles Without a License and one count of Conspiracy to Commit Offenses Against the United States."  Unlike many white collar offenders, and certainly those involved in corporate fraud, the individual convicted in this case "was previously convicted in 1987 of violating the Arms Export Control Act by illegally exporting HAWK missile system components from the United States."  The press release states that he was deported thereafter.  So why is he here in the US and being prosecuted a second time?
