LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A computer programmer from central Kentucky who once did contract work for Toyota is scheduled for sentencing June 4 after being convicted of hacking into and damaging computers used by the automobile maker.

A federal jury in February found Ibrahimshah 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.

The sentencing hearing is set to take place in federal court in Lexington.
