The US court sentenced Russian Roman Seleznev, the son of a State Duma deputy from the LDPR party Valery Seleznev, to 27 years in prison on a cyber fraud case, the Daily Mail reported.
"A citizen of the Russian Federation was sentenced to 27 years in prison for hacking American companies to steal credit cards data," the report said.
Earlier, Roman Seleznev signed confessions in the incriminated crimes on 11 pages. However, the investigation still required for him 30 years in prison.
In August 2016, the jury found Seleznev guilty for 38 of the 40 episodes, acquitting him on the two remaining episodes. The Russian was accused of 40 criminal episodes in five articles: cyber fraud, deliberate infliction of damage to a protected computer, obtaining information from a protected computer, storing more than 15 unauthorized devices to access secure computer networks, theft of personal information under aggravating circumstances.
The prosecution claimed that Seleznev inflicted damage on $ 170 million. Prosecutors at the trial argued that on Seleznev's computer in 2014, they found 1.7 million stolen credit card numbers, and nearly 3 million numbers were stolen.
