A 22-year-old man from the U.S. territory of Kansas has been prosecuted on charges that he unauthorizedly got to a public water office’s PC framework, endangering the lives in the nearby local area.
Wyatt A. Travnichek, 22, of Ellsworth County, Kansas, has been accused of one tally of messing with a public water framework and one tally of foolish harm to a secured PC during unapproved access, as per the Department of Justice (DoJ).
“By unlawfully altering a public drinking water framework, the respondent undermined the wellbeing and soundness of a whole local area,” said Lance Ehrig, Special Agent in Charge of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Criminal Investigation Division in Kansas.
“EPA and its law implementation accomplices are focused on maintaining the laws intended to shield our drinking water frameworks from mischief or danger of damage. The present arraignment sends a reasonable message that people who deliberately disregard these laws will be enthusiastically indicted.”
On March 27, 2019, Travnichek is said to have broken into a secured PC framework having a place with the region’s Post-Rock Rural Water District, utilizing it to close down the cleaning and sanitizing measures at the office.
The arraignment doesn’t determine if the assault was fruitful and how it was distinguished. Whenever saw as blameworthy, Travnichek faces as long as 25 years in government jail and a complete fine of $500,000.
