LulzSec hacker faces 30 years to life | Criminology and Economic Theory | Scoop.it
Jeremy Hammond is denied bail, placed on terrorist watch list...

 

Either way, a potential sentence of 30 years to life for alleged hacking crimes is probably enough to get the attention of most 27-year-olds. And that is what U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska told Hammond last week that he could face if he is convicted on all counts.

 

Hammond, much better known in the world of hactivism by various online aliases including "Anarchaos," "sup_g," "burn," "yohoho," "POW," "tylerknowsthis," and "crediblethreat," has been held without bail since his arrest in March on charges connected with last year's hacking of Strategic Forecasting, or Stratfor, an Austin, Texas-based international intelligence broker, by AntiSec, an offshoot of LulzSec, which is in turn an offshoot of the hacktivist collective Anonymous.

I’m sure that Benthall doesn’t feel like he did anything wrong and that he was making money protesting the tyranny of a society that does not allow dangerous and addictive drugs to be used recreationally. As long as there are people willing to be the keystone in endeavors like this we will have to continue to become more creative in how to catch these people and stop the import of those drugs. Sounds like the international cooperation on this investigation could be very interesting to observe and understand.
