    OFFICEMAX HACKER GETS 20 YEARS
    A Miami computer hacker was sentenced to 20 years in prison
    for leading the largest U.S. identity-theft ring, stealing 130 million
    credit- and debit-card records from Naperville-based OfficeMax,
    Heartland Payment Systems Inc. and other companies.

    Albert
    Gonzalez, 28, was sentenced in federal court in Boston for pleading
    guilty to thefts from Heartland, 7-Eleven Inc., Delhaize Group’s
    Hannaford Brothers Co. and two unidentified national retailers.
    Prosecutors, who filed the case in New Jersey and transferred it to
    Boston, said the crimes caused hundreds of millions of dollars in
    losses.

    Another judge sentenced Gonzalez yesterday to 20 years
    for the theft of 40 million credit- and debit-card records from
    retailers including TJX Cos., OfficeMax Inc. and BJ’s Wholesale Club
    Inc. The sentence for those crimes, filed in New York and Boston, will
    run at the same time as the term imposed today.
