WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A federal judge has scheduled a summer trial for a Wisconsin man accused of joining a cyberattack on Wichita-based Koch Industries.

The scheduling order handed down Friday in the case of 37-year-old Erick J. Rosol of Black Creek, Wis., sets his trial for June 25 in U.S. District Court in Wichita.

Rosol was indicted on one count each of damaging a computer and conspiracy to damage a computer.

Prosecutors allege the computer hacking group Anonymous asked conspirators in February 2011 to send a high volume of repeated requests to Koch's website, crashing the site. Rosol is also accused of sending a code that damaged Koch's computer.

Defense lawyer Kurt Kerns says his client is innocent. Kerns says nothing was hacked and no information was lost.
