Hacker-Turned-Informant to Be Freed After Helping Feds

Seven months? How many years was this guy facing when he initially plead guilty? Wow.

Monsegur helped the FBI "disrupt or prevent at least 300 hacks" against the military, Congress and "several private companies," prosecutors wrote, adding that "Monsegur’s actions prevented at least millions of dollars in loss to these victims." Monsegur was sentenced by Judge Loretta Preska to time already served آ– some seven months.
