Oops: After Threatening Hacker With 440 Years, Prosecutors Settle for a Misdemeanor

Thanks in part to America’s ill-defined hacking laws, prosecutors have enormous discretion to determine a hacker defendant’s fate. But in one young Texan’s case in particular, the Department of Justice stretched prosecutorial overreach to a new extreme: about 440 years too far.

The story is too old to be commented.

Hacking should be encouraged more but unfortunately that is not the case. I say so since the silicon valley giants are more likely to hire a hacker than just a computer geek.
