TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- A Massachusetts man has been sentenced to 21 months in prison for his part in an international cybercrime ring that targeted more than a dozen financial institutions and the U.S. military's payroll service.

Robert Dubuc was sentenced Friday for his role in the ring that attempted to steal at least $15 million from U.S. customers. Dubuc was ordered to pay $338,685 in restitution and serve three years of supervised release.

The 41-year-old from Malden, Massachusetts, previously pleaded guilty to using information hacked from customers' accounts to make ATM and bank withdrawals. He sent some of the money to the two alleged ringleaders in Ukraine.

Two people from Ukraine who was charged remain at large, while co-defendant Oleg Pidtergerya will be sentenced Dec. 22.
