TULSA, Okla. (AP) – The second leader of a computer hacking group has been sentenced to two years in a federal prison.

Federal officials say 27-year-old Nicholas Paul Knight of Chantilly, Virginia was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Tulsa. A co-defendant, 20-year-old Daniel Krueger of Dix, Illinois was sentenced to two years in prison last month.

Court documents indicate that in June 2012, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service detected a breach in a Navy database that stored personal records for about 222,000 service members. The servers that stored the records were located in Tulsa. Knight and others then posted links to the private information to make it available to the public.

Knight was a Navy Nuclear Systems Administrator aboard the USS Harry S. Truman. He was discharged from the Navy last year.
