Former Uber and Google engineer finally gets prison sentence

Anthony Levandowski received an 18-month prison sentence after his involvement in a situation that involved Google, Uber and Waymo in a court case. The charges were theft of private information from Waymo, owned by Alphabet, which he took to Uber after he left.

However, Anthony Levandowski will not go directly to prison. His imprisonment for now has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the ex-engineer awaits announcement date to enter prison. Until then, it will be confined.

In addition to the sentence, Anthony Levandowski will also have to pay $ 756 million to Google, with an additional fine of $ 90,000. In fact, the former engineer’s sentence was supposed to have been 27 months, with support from a United States attorney general.

The same states that the crime of stealing information from one company, taking it to the other company, constitutes a serious theft. This crime undermined the contributions of other individuals who worked to develop the technologies in question, aimed at driving autonomous cars.

Anthony Levandowski’s situation summary

Levandowski was an engineer and co-founder of the Chaffeur Project, started by Google in 2009 to develop autonomous driving technology. In 2016, Levandowski abandoned Google and founded Otto with 2 other former employees. Eventually, Uber acquired Otto.

Two months after the acquisition, Google started suing Levandowski and Uber stepped in, defending its engineer. Eventually, Waymo, which now develops driving technologies for Google, sued Uber directly, with allegations of patent and document theft.

Patents and documents that were stolen by Levandowski and taken to Google. Uber eventually managed to strike a deal with Wayo, paying $ 244 million. The former engineer, however, was left with the original process unresolved.
