A Mitchell couple arrested in June for taking about $20,000 after hacking into a company’s computer system were sentenced to the state penitentiary on Tuesday at the Davison County Public Safety Center.

Ramon Shultz, 37, received a 12-year sentence, with six years suspended in the state penitentiary. He was credited for one day served. Attorney Richard Rylance originally asked for 180 days in the county jail, split between 18 days per year for the next decade.

His wife, Kylie Shultz, 38, received a 12-year sentence, with four years suspended in the state penitentiary and credit for one day served. Judge Chris Giles said he felt she was more of the driving force behind the felony, which led to her longer punishment.

They each received a $2,000 fine, $106.50 in court costs and $152.32 in prosecution. They will jointly be responsible for $35,832.75 in restitution.
