Russian sentenced for cyber crime in New York

On Friday a New York court sentenced Russian Vladimir Zdorovenin to three years in prison after being found guilty of cyber fraud, identity theft and illegal operations with securities.

In January 2012 Zdorovenin, 55, was extradited to New York from Switzerland, where he was detained in March 2011. Zdorovenin has thus already been imprisoned for almost two years.

According to U.S. prosecutors, Zdorovenin and his son Kirill were engaged in criminal activities since 2004.

The whereabouts of Kirill Zdorovenin are unknown. According to investigators he was the organizer of the "business."
