Armen Hovanesian, a former employee of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, has been penalized with a $10,000 fine for fraudulent activities related to federal COVID-19 relief loans.

Acting as a cost-control and budget-planning resource analyst at JPL, Hovanesian admitted to wire fraud and received a two-year probation sentence.

His misconduct involved submitting false loan applications to the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program from June to October 2020.

Despite certifying the loan proceeds would be used for legitimate business purposes, Hovanesian redirected the funds to settle personal debts and finance an illegal marijuana cultivation project.
