LEXINGTON, Kentucky — A computer programmer from central Kentucky convicted of hacking into and damaging Toyota's computers has been sent to a prison in Natchez, Mississippi.

The federal Bureau of Prisons lists 37-year-old Ibrahimshah Shahulhameed as an inmate at Adams County Correctional Institute.

A federal jury in February found Shahulhameed guilty of intentionally sabotaging and crashing Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky's supplier computer network.

Prosecutors say Shahulhameed, a citizen of India, did more than $5,000 in damage to the company's computers on Aug. 23 and Aug. 24, 2012 at the Scott County Camry plant. Prosecutors say Shahulhameed rendered the system in operable in some cases and, in others, prevented other Toyota employees from accessing the system.
