Along with a fine of nearly $2.8 million, the man is facing 10 years in prison for selling nearly 1,000 stolen MacBooks.
According to Market Watch, a man named Philip James (from Folsom, California, USA) bought the MacBook stolen from multiple people between October 2015 – June 2020. Court documents say the man paid between $1,600 and $2,250 for each device. These MacBooks were then sold by James to the market for a profit.
According to reports, around 100 cars were stolen from Tesla by Cory Beck, who works in the car company’s IT department. Another 100 were stolen from UC Berkeley (University of California) by Jonas Jarut. And about 800 were stolen from Stanford by Eric Castenada and Patricia Castenada. These 2 people work for a university of humanities and society, responsible for purchasing computers.
Jarut, Beck and Castendadas have also previously pleaded guilty in other related cases.
Philip James will be sentenced in July, and according to the charges, he could receive a 10-year prison sentence. Currently, this man has agreed to pay a $2.765 million settlement fee to Tesla and the universities.
