Former UNL Student Pleads Guilty In Records Case

CREATED Dec 4, 2013

Lincoln, Neb. (AP) - A 23-year-old Omaha man has made a deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to a count of fraud in connection with a computer security breach at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln last year.
   
The Lincoln Journal Star says Daniel Stratman made the plea on Tuesday. Federal prosecutors agreed to recommend a sentence at the low end of the guideline range and not more than two years of incarceration. Stratman's sentencing is scheduled for March 21.
   
Stratman was a student at UNL in May 2012 when the breach occurred. Prosecutors say Stratman hacked into a database of more than 650,000 student, alumni and employee records.
