Albert Gonzalez Gets 20 Years for Hacking, and Then Some

Posted by susabelle at 7:21 AM on March 26, 2010

Just an update from my story of a few days ago. Hacker Albert Gonzalez got a sentence of 20 years on the first guilty plea, entered in Massachusetts, to unauthorized computer access. Two more cases (and guilty please) in New York and New Jersey will be finalized next week in Boston, when additional sentences will be pronounced.

It’s probably not enough, but it sends a really strong message, that’s for sure. Keep your hands of what isn’t yours.
