Plea confusion for Mitchell County man facing federal charges

Scheduled guilty plea doesn't happen.

Posted: Jul. 5, 2018 1:46 PM

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – A planned guilty plea never happened for a St. Ansgar man accused of stealing trade secrets.

Josh Harry Isler, 55, is charged with one count of trade secret theft and one count of making a false statement to the FBI. Authorities say Isler stole information while working at DuPont in 2013 after accepting a job at a competitor, then giving some of that data to his new employer. The FBI also says Isler lied to them when they investigated the matter.

An arraignment and plea hearing was to take place Thursday in Cedar Rapids Federal Court. Isler had filed notice of his intent to plead guilty but actually entered a not guilty plea on Thursday. Court records indicate another plea hearing is planned but no date has been set.
