The Los Angeles Times reports that Cody Kretsinger, 25, a.k.a. "Recursion," has been sentenced to a year in prison followed by a year of home detention and 1,000 hours of community service for his involvement in LulzSec's 2011 breach of Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Kretsinger has also been ordered to pay more than $605,000 in restitution.

Kretsinger was arrested in September of 2011. He initially pleaded not guilty, then pleaded guilty a year ago to one count of conspiracy and one count of unauthorized impairment of a protected computer as part of a plea deal.

Fellow LulzSec member Raynaldo Rivera, a.k.a. "Neuron," will be sentenced within the next few days, and LulzSec members Ryan Ackroyd, a.k.a. "Kayla," Jake Davis, a.k.a. "Topiary," Mustafa al-Bassam, a.k.a. "Tflow," and Ryan Cleary will be sentenced on May 14, 2013. Hacker Sabu, who became an FBI informant in 2011, was apparently instrumental in his fellow hackers' arrests.
