Massoud Amin, 56, is director of the Technological Leadership Institute at the U, as well as a professor of electrical and computer engineering.

Court documents say the felony charge stems from giving forged documents to his ex-wife’s divorce attorney.

He then bought 14 guns during a three-week span in late June and early July.

Amin’s first court appearance is Sept. 13.
