Baldwin Borough resident Robert S. Toski has been sentenced in federal court to two years of probation, six months of home detention with electronic monitoring, a fine of $2,000 and restitution in the amount of $6,114.71 for his conviction of unauthorized computer access to a protected computer, and computer damage, U.S. Attorney David J. Hickton announced on Friday.
U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti imposed the sentence on Toski, 48, of 5139 Janie Dr.
According to information presented to the court, Toski knowingly caused the transmission of a program, information, code or command, and as a result of such conduct, intentionally caused damage, without authorization, to a protected computer—namely, a JPMorgan Chase server for PaymentNet located in Salt Lake City, UT. The offense caused an aggregate loss of $6,114.71 to Levy Restaurants and JP Morgan/Chase Bank during a one-year period.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul E. Hull prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.
Hickton commended the U.S. Secret Service for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Toski.
