Sentence for 'trojan': Russian programmer sentenced to jail in US
Given the served term and good behavior, the creator of the Trojan will be able to go free at the beginning of next year. The defense previously said that on all charges against him, he faces up to 35 years in prison, writes RBC.
A court in the Southern District of New York State sentenced Russian programmer Stanislav Lisov to four years in prison, who in February pleaded guilty to the creation of the NeverQuest Trojan program, which stole money from accounts in American banks. At the same time, according to RIA Novosti, Lisov will be able to go free already at the beginning of next year.
As programmer’s lawyer Arkady Bukh explained to reporters, the court took into account the accused’s good behavior and the fact that he had already spent several years in custody. Therefore, it is likely that in the spring of next year, Lisov will leave prison and be deported to Russia.
