SEATTLE (AP) - A Russian lawmaker's son accused of hacking computers at hundreds of U.S. businesses and stealing credit card information pleaded not guilty Friday to 29 charges.
U.S. District Court Judge John L. Weinberg ordered Roman Seleznev of Vladivostok, Russia, held without bail until a hearing on Aug. 16 to consider his custody status. His trial has been set to begin on Oct. 6.
A 2011 grand jury indictment alleges that Seleznev stole more than 200,000 credit card numbers and sold more than 140,000, generating more than $2 million in profits. Some of the victims are in Seattle.
Seleznev was captured last month at an airport in the Maldives and flown to the U.S. territory of Guam, where another federal judge sent him to Seattle to face the charges.
