Successful prosecution of system breakers

I've seen some statistics on the rates of university computer
break-ins that I'd like to gain a better understanding of.

I'd like to get an idea about the percentage of break-ins where 
the culprit is:

1) Found
2) Prosecuted

For this information, I do not include break-ins performed
by automated code (worms, viruses, etc.) and I'm interested
in actual system compromises rather than scans.

This is for my own internal information just to get a feeling
of the scale of the problem.

We can share off-line if you wish.
