The former UT student charged with stealing 55,200 UT students' and employees' personal information was indicted Wednesday on four counts of fraud.

Christopher Andrew Phillips waited more than a year for federal prosecutors to secure the indictment.

One official had characterized it as the University's worst online information theft to date.
