OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- An Omaha man has been sentenced to six months in prison for computer fraud for breaking into databases of the University of Nebraska and the Nebraska State College System.
Daniel Stratman, who is 23, will be allowed to serve his sentence on work release. He also must serve a 3-year term of supervised release and pay more than $107,000 in restitution.
U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg says in a statement a computer security breach was discovered in May 2012. An investigation led investigators to Stratman, then a senior at University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
A search warrant of his residence and forensic examination of his computers verified that he had damaged the integrity of the protected computer systems and records maintained by the University of Nebraska and the Nebraska State College Systems.
