Journalist Sentenced To 5 Years For Linking Hacked Material

Remember that Barrett Brown guy that, among other things, threatened an FBI agent online and claimed to be the head of Anonymous? A judge just sentenced him to over five years in prison and a $890,000 fine for linking hacked material.

In a rebuke to a legion of online supporters and what the journalist and one-time member of Anonymous called a "dangerous precedent", Barrett Brown was sentenced to 63 months in prison by a federal judge in Dallas on Thursday.
