TJX Suspect Sentenced To 30 Years In An Unrelated Case

A key suspect in the TJX data breach case has been sentenced to 30 years in prison, but it has nothing whatsoever to do with the TJX case.

Maksym Yastremskiy was charged in Turkey with breaking into Turkish bank accounts electronically. During the hearing where he was sentenced to 30 years, he said that a laptop computer found in his hotel room containing bank information belonged to a friend. "I am innocent. I didn't do anything to break bank accounts. Somebody else did it, not me. I want to be released from the jail," he told the judge, according to The Boston Globe.
