Hacker Gonzalez Pleads Guilty in New Jersey

Kara Reeder

Hacking mastermind Albert Gonzalez has agreed to plead guilty to federal charges he faces in New Jersey. Reuters reports. Gonzalez has been linked to electronic break-ins at New England grocer Hannaford Bros. and at 7-Eleven. There are no details on the plea agreement.


Earlier this year, Gonzalez pleaded guilty in Massachusetts to conspiracy, wire fraud and aggravated identity theft in connection with security breaches of a number of merchants, including TJX Cos. and BJ's Wholesale Club. Under that plea agreement, Gonzalez faces a sentence of 15 to 25 years.
