Albert Gonzalez, the Miami hacker who pulled off the biggest theft of credit card information in history, has reached a plea deal with the feds. He'll get 15 to 25 years in prison. He'll also return $2.8 million in ill-begotten funs along with some pricey personal property.
He'll plead guilty to 19 counts in a Boston court September 11.
However, he still faces charges in New Jersey, and the plea deal won't affect his sentencing there.
A former government informant, Gonzalez went by a number of colorful hacker names online, including "soupnazi."
