Recommended Posts

FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – A former IT Manager with the U.S. Navy was sentenced to five years and five months in prison for hacking a computer database that contained personally identifiable information (PII) and selling it, U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced on Monday.

According to court records, in August 2018, Marquis Hooper, 32, of Selma opened an online account with a company that runs a database containing PII for millions of people.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says that the company restricts access to the databases and government agencies that have a demonstrated, lawful need for the PII.
