Alexey Burkov in the High Court of Justice of Israel
Russian Alexei Burkov, extradited from Israel to the United States in November, where he is accused of cybercrime, pleaded guilty at a trial on Thursday. This was reported by TASS and RIA Novosti with reference to their correspondents in the courtroom.
We are talking about a deal with the investigation and pleading guilty on two points – the theft of personal data and money laundering.
Last week, the Russian lawyer said that his client was going to plead guilty to a number of charges at a hearing in the federal court of the city of Alexandria in the United States.
The Russians were initially charged with electronic fraud, fraud using devices to access data, conspiracy to commit fraudulent acts, hacking computer systems, theft of personal data and money laundering. The Justice Ministry warned that if Burkova is found guilty of all charges, he faces up to 80 years in prison.
