Cody Kretsinger of the U.S. charged in Sony hacking

A man was arrested and charged Thursday in connection with the breach of computers at Sony Pictures Entertainment early this summer in which more than 37,000 users had their information stolen.

Cody Kretsinger, 23, of Tempe, Arizona, was arrested and expected to make a court appearance later Thursday in a Phoenix courtroom.

An indictment unsealed in Los Angeles charged Kretsinger with one count each of conspiracy and unauthorized impairment of a protected computer. If convicted of both counts, he faces up to 15 years in prison.
