Former University of Nebraska student in hot water after hacking

Posted: Updated:

A former University of Nebraska Lincoln student is in trouble after hacking into the University's personal records.

22 year old Daniel Stratman faces Federal Criminal charges for hacking a database with more than 600,000 students, alumni and employee records.

Prosecutors say he accessed a protected computer without permission, breaking into the database with records from the University of Nebraska's campuses.

Officials don't believe any sensitive information from the database was downloaded.

Stratman made his initial court appearance last week.

He faces up to ten years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted.
