Omaha Man Sentenced For Role In UNL Security Breach
Lincoln, NE~~A 23-year-old Omaha man has been sentenced to 6 months in prison for his role in a security breach at the University of Nebraska.
Daniel Stratman was sentenced Thursday in Lincoln to 6 months in prison for one count of Fraud and Related Activity in Connection with Computers. Stratman will be allowed work release while serving his prison sentence, and will then be required to serve a 3 year term of supervised release and will also have to pay $107,722.58 in restitution.
A security breach of the University of Nebraska and the Nebraska State College System database was discovered in May of 2012. The investigation led law enforcement to Stratman, a senior at UNL at the time of the intrusion.
A search warrant of Stratman’s residence and forensic examination of his computers verified that Stratman had damaged the integrity of the protected computer systems and records maintained by the University of Nebraska and the Nebraska State College Systems.
