Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner may be able to rest now that Luis Flores, Jr. has received sentencing. According to TMZ on Feb. 1, 2014, Luis received 3 1/2 years in the federal prison for stealing their identities.

On August 7, 2013, police arrested two cyber thieves who allegedly stole the identities of Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner from the TV reality show, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” However, they weren't the only ones to have their identities stolen. The two cyber thieves stole the identities of other celebrities like, Ashton Kutcher, Beyonce, Mel Gibson and Paris Hilton. They also managed to steal the identity of former FBI director, Robert Mueller, along with Michelle Obama, Bill Gates, Joe Biden, and Hillary Clinton.

Luis, 19, and his partner/roommate, Kyah Green, 41, found the celebrities social security numbers, addresses, credit card numbers and other information when someone hacked into the personal information of celebrities and displayed the information on a website. Luis and Kyah used the numbers to get money from American Express. Luis and Kyah transferred over $70,000 from Kris Jenner’s account to theirs.

TMZ reports that Luis ordered replacement cards to his address. That is how authorities were able to arrest him. This isn’t the first time that Luis has been arrested. He was in jail for diverting his AT&T store co-workers paychecks into his account.
