Anthony Levandowski, recognized for advancing self-driving car or truck technological innovation in the last ten years, agreed to plead responsible on Thursday to getting delicate documents from his former employer Google in advance of joining rival Uber.
He will provide no far more than 30 months in prison as part of an arrangement with federal prosecutors in just one of the most effectively-recognised company disputes in new Silicon Valley historical past.
“Mr. Levandowski accepts responsibility and is seeking forward to resolving this matter,” his legal professional, Miles Ehrlich, claimed in a statement.
