Just a few days after the Major League Baseball season opens next month, former St. Louis Cardinals scouting director Chris Correa will attend a sentencing hearing where he faces to up to five years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and payment of restitution to the Houston Astros. Correa pleaded guilty earlier this year to criminal charges brought against him under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act ("CFAA"), 18 U.S.C. § 1030. Trade secret lawyers, baseball fans, and "Moneyball" enthusiasts are familiar with the allegations. Correa used the password of a former Cardinals employee now working for the Astros to access the Astros' scouting database and obtain confidential player evaluation data.
