Second TJX Case Defendant Pleads Guilty

A second defendant in the so-called TJX Breach case—which also had at least seven other major retail chains as fellow victims—pleaded guilty Monday (Sept. 22), this time to charges of conspiracy, unauthorized access to computer systems, access device fraud and identity theft.

The accused, Christopher Scott, a 25-year-old Miami resident, pleaded guilty after prosecutors said they could prove that he was paid $400,000 for assisting a retail wardriving scheme. Scott's plea follows the Sept. 11 guilty plea of fellow Miami resident Damon Patrick Toey.
