    Barriss was convicted in 2016 for calling in a bomb threat to an ABC affiliate in Los Angeles. He was sentenced to two years in prison for that stunt, but was released in January 2017.

    What a smart idea, get them all together so that they can exchange info, sharpen their hacking skills and formulate new methods to avoid detection.

    "British Hacker Won't Be Extradited to the US Because American Prisons Are 'Medieval'

    Lauri Love, a 32-year-old British computer hacker wanted by the FBI, will not be extradited to the United States. The ruling came down today after Love’s attorneys argued that he suffered from depression and was at risk of dying by suicide if he were placed in solitary confinement in the US, a disciplinary tactic seen by most of the developed world as torture.

    Love, who holds dual citizenship in the UK and Finland but resides in Britain, was arrested in 2013 for allegedly hacking into sensitive computer systems in the US, including those of the FBI, NASA, and the US Army. Love faced as much as a 99-year sentence in prison if he were sent to the US for trial. Under British law, he now faces something closer to a maximum of 12 years.

    During a hearing in November, lawyers for Love cited a study about the unusually high risk of suicide at New York’s Metropolitan Correction Center in Brooklyn and have called the conditions in US prisons “unconscionable” and “medieval.” As The Guardian reports, Love has Asperger’s syndrome along with severe depression, two conditions which both came under consideration during the extradition hearings...

    The crowd in the courtroom reportedly burst out into cheers as the verdict against Love’s extradition was read..."

    "Justice Department indicts 36 people for role in $530 million worth of cybercrime

    The Justice Department said it's indicted 36 people for their alleged role in an internet-based cybercriminal enterprise engaged in the large-scale acquisition, sale, and dissemination of stolen identities, compromised debit and credit cards, personally identifiable information, financial and banking information, computer malware, and other contraband. It said 13 people were arrested in the U.S., Australia, the U.K., France, Italy, Kosovo and Serbia. Its members allegedly caused more than $530 million in actual losses to consumers, businesses, and financial institutions, the Justice Department said. The group was called the Infraud Organization and had a slogan, "In Fraud We Trust," the government said."
