A computer hacker connected to the group Anonymous could face life in prison for stealing credit card, email, and other personal information from a private intelligence company, and posting it on the Internet.
The compromised information already has cost the company, Strategic Forecasters, several million dollars in a class-action lawsuit with its customers, one of which is the judge overseeing the criminal case against alleged hacker Jeremy Hammonds, reported RT.com.
Hammond, a member of LulzSec, an offshoot of the hacktivist collective Anonymous, is accused of breaking into Strategic Forecasters servers and collecting thousands of emails, credit card numbers and pieces of sensitive information related to the companys customers.

“A computer hacker connected to the group Anonymous could face life in prison.”
Perhaps this one time we could impose Sharia law. Cut off the thief’s hands like they do in Saudi Arabia. It might be a strong deterrent to others who use their keyboards to steal.
What was this luser ever hoping to prove with this ghastly stunt?
Life in prison? Good. Have the guy serve it in chains in a damp cell.
Say hello to your new cellmate, “Bubba”.....
Several members of the activist community he belongs to, both online and offline, have questioned Preskas ability to conduct a fair trial.
Judge Preska by proxy is a victim of the very crime she intends to judge Jeremy Hammond for. Judge Preska has failed to disclose the fact that her husband is a client of Stratfor and recuse herself from Jeremy’s case, therefore violating multiple sections of Title 28 of the United States Code, reads a press release from Anonymous.
Judge Loretta Preska’s impartiality is compromised by her husband’s involvement with Stratfor and a clear prejudice against Hammond exists, as evident by her statements, it continues. Without justice being freely, fully, and impartially administered, neither our persons, nor our rights, nor our property, can be protected.
The nerve of these guys! They routinely and deliberately violate the law and then complain about its impartial administration.
If they hit him with multiple charges of theft, etc. he could get life. I’ll bet he’ll sing like a big canary if he is charged with every possible crime.
Looks like Anonymous and their related affiliates are in for a midnight knock on the door. PRICELESS.
My thoughts as well. If they wanted our persons, our rights, our property, to be protected then they would be negating protection.
By that standard, no one could ever be convicted of crimes against humanity. You'd never be able to find a suitably impartial judge or jury.
