PITTSBURGH, Pa. - A resident of Pittsburgh, Pa., has been sentenced in federal court to two years probation, six months home detention with electronic monitoring, a fine of $2,000 and restitution in the amount of $6,114.71 on his conviction of unauthorized computer access to a protected computer and computer damage, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

United States District Judge Joy Flowers Conti imposed the sentence on Robert S. Toski, 48.

Assistant United States Attorney Paul E. Hull prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

U.S. Attorney Hickton commended the United States Secret Service for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Toski.
