Last Monday, July 18, United States District Court Judge Lynn Hughes sentenced the St. Louis Cardinals’ former scouting director Christopher Correa to 46 months in prison for hacking the Houston Astros’ player personnel database.
Correa pleaded guilty in January 2016 to five counts of unauthorized access of a protected computer from 2013 to at least 2014. In 2014, Correa was promoted to St. Louis Cardinals’ director of baseball development. Correa faced up to five years of imprisonment for each count. He was also ordered to pay $279,038 in restitution. Before his sentencing, Correa read a letter saying he was “overwhelmed with remorse and regret for my actions.”
