SEATTLE (AP) SEATTLE (AP) -- A Russian lawmaker's son accused of hacking computers at hundreds of U.S. businesses and stealing credit card information has pleaded not guilty.
A federal judge in Seattle ordered Roman Seleznev held without bail. His trial has been set to begin Oct. 6.
A 2011 grand jury indictment alleges Seleznev stole more than 200,000 credit card numbers and sold more than 140,000 of them, generating more than $2 million in profits. Some of the victims are in Seattle, where the investigation was centered and an indictment was filed.
Seleznev was arrested last month at an airport in the Maldives and flown to the U.S. territory of Guam, where another federal judge sent him to Seattle to face the charges. But the Russian Foreign Ministry has accused the U.S. government of kidnapping Seleznev.
