Journalist Sentenced To Two Years In Hacking Case

Do you guys remember this genius? Well, it looks like he has finally been sentenced today and ended up getting a two year prison sentence. As you might expect, his lawyer says he will file an appeal.

Keys was convicted of violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) last October, in a bizarre case that led to the temporary defacement of a story about a tax bill on the LA Times website. (The headline was altered to read "Pressure builds in House to elect CHIPPY 1337" by an unidentified individual and was live on the Times‘ website for only about 40 minutes before it was corrected.)
