Woman sentenced in global ATM and computer hacking scheme
A 45-year-old woman has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison for participating in what the U.S. Attorney’s office said was a sophisticated computer hacking and ATM cash out scheme.
U.S. District Judge Steve Jones sentenced Sonya Martin for conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Authorities said she was from Nigeria and Chicago. U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said the charges stemmed from a scheme where hackers obtained access into the computer network of a payment processor located in Atlanta.
