A British man accused of hacking into U.S. government computer networks was charged in a new indictment unsealed Thursday with infiltrating the Federal Reserve’s computers.

Lauri Love, 28, of Stradishall, England, was charged with computer hacking and aggravated identity theft, which carry a potential penalty of up to 12 years in prison. He initially was arrested in Britain in October and released on bail after he was charged under a United Kingdom law that permits the arrest of anyone who starts attacks from the U.K. on computers anywhere in the world.

U.S. authorities in the fall had said Love cost the U.S. government millions of dollars by hacking into the computer systems of various agencies, including the U.S. Army, NASA and the Environmental Protection Agency. Those charges were brought in federal court in Newark, New Jersey. He also faced federal charges in Virginia for other alleged intrusions.
