The sixth and final U.S. person charged two years ago with breaking into the computer networks at discount retail parent TJX was sentenced Thursday. A U.S. District Court judge in Boston sentenced Damon Patrick Toey, 25, to five years in prison and fined him $100,000. Toey pleaded guilty in September 2008 to wire fraud, credit card fraud and aggravated identity theft. He also is connected to a number of other major heists at retailers and payment processor Heartland Payment Systems. The ring's orchestrator, Albert Gonzalez, was sentenced last month to 20 years in prison. Some of Gonzalez' Eastern European-based co-conspirators remain at large. — DK
