Hacker faces decades in prison

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Fed­eral pros­e­cu­tors on Thurs­day said they want a Rus­sian con­victed of hack­ing into US busi­nesses to steal credit card data to be sen­tenced to 30 years in prison and or­dered to pay $170 mil­lion in resti­tu­tion. But Ro­man Seleznev’s lawyers said his trou­bled his­tory, poor health and will­ing­ness to help the gov­ern­ment catch other cy­ber­crim­i­nals should be con­sid­ered when de­cid­ing his sen­tence.
