    If you ask me, his sentence should be longer.

    The only thing that popped out when I read about this - I'd wish they'd mentioned more about that, the first thing I thought was they although unlikely got extremely lucky or found his password.

    :doubt: I'm not sure they should let him anywhere NEAR a computer,
    that seems really short sighted or just plain ignorant..

    Who's going to watch over him, who's there that knows as much about hacking as he does-
    besides other prisoners.. :rolleyes:

    NO KIDDING!!

    Prior jail time in 2001 for Hacking & then:

    "He was caught with 1.8 million stolen credit card numbers belonging to a thousand different banks, who tallied the fraudulent charges on the cards at $86.4 million....."

    & what does the prosecuter say? "“He’s a likable person,” said prosecutor Dembosky. “Almost wide-eyed and optimistic in his view of the world.”

    I'd like to know when they started handing out hallucinogenics in courtrooms?
    If I went the local liquor store & robbed it, I'd probably get atleast 5 years!

    (I wish I knew his encryption setup & how fast it was cracked, though - That part was scary!)
