The son of a Russian lawmaker was sentenced on Friday by a U.S. federal court to 27 years in prison after being convicted of hacking into U.S. small businesses and financial institutions, causing more than $169 million in damages. Roman Seleznev was found guilty last year by a jury in Seattle on 38 counts in a scheme that prosecutors said involved hacking into point-of-sale computers to steal credit card numbers and sell them on the Internet.
