A man accused of hacking into a University of Nebraska database pled guilty Tuesday to one count of intentionally damaging a protected computer and causing loss in excess of $5,000. His sentencing is set for March 21, 2014.

Officials said Daniel Stratman reached the database of more than 650,000 student, alumni and employee records. Officials said there was no evidence the information was downloaded.

Stratman was a senior at UNL at the time of the breach and listed an Omaha address.

The university says the breach into the Nebraska Student Information System was discovered May 22 by computer technicians and quickly stopped. The system contains Social Security numbers, addresses, grades, transcripts and other information for current and former students, applicants and alumni dating to spring 1985.
