Journalist sentenced to 24 months in prison.

A federal judge sentenced journalist Matthew Keys to two years in prison after he was convicted last year of three counts of conspiracy and criminal hacking.

It is a horse and buggy law in a jet plane society,” Jay Leiderman told the court. “It doesn’t account for the modern Internet, the punishments do not fit the crime.”

Jay Leiderman has dedicated his entire professional career to standing up as a staunch defender of our constitutional freedoms. He is a criminal law specialist and defense attorney who has represented members of Anonymous and Lulzsec. Jay, one of Keys’ attorneys said the legal team may even try to appeal up to the Supreme Court as a way to challenge the law Keys was charged under, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, a notorious anti-hacking law that dates back to 1984.

Jay Leiderman, who did the bulk of the arguing on behalf of Keys, admitted that his client was “immature” at the time of the conduct for which he was convicted. He even noted that Keys had recently applied for a job as a records clerk at the Vacaville Police Department, and that they were apprised of his legal situation. After the conclusion of the hearing, Jay Leiderman expanded on that point, indicating that the defense was hoping for a retrial…

  1. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post
    seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to
    let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope
    you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers

  2. Remember remember the 5th of November because the Anon op for April Fool’s Day where there was supposed to be a big dump of Trump’s personal information didn’t happen. And OpIcarus is just a bunch of DDoSs on front facing websites of banks. What happened to Anonymous? There isn’t any hacking anymore. DDoS is just a bunch of kids begging to be arrested for nonsense. I miss LulzSec.

  3. Whether or not you are traveling inside the United States or abroad, there are many points you will want to recall when you travel.

  4. Good quotes, righteous indignation. But next time let the host get a word in edgewise Jay! Lol.

  5. Time:
    Matthew Keys, a former employee, conspired with Anonymous to change a headline

    A former Reuters journalist was found guilty Wednesday for conspiring with the hacker group Anonymous to change a headline on the Los Angeles Times website, the Department of Justice announced Wednesday.

    Matthew Keys was found guilty of conspiracy to cause damage to a protected computer, transmission of malicious code, and attempted transmission of malicious code. The crimes carry a maximum of 25 years in federal prison, but prosecutors told Vice‘s Motherboard they’re seeking less than five years against Keys.

    The attack took place in December 2010, when Keys—who formerly worked with television station FOX40, which is owned by the Times‘ parent Tribune Company—revealed to members of Anonymous that he had log-in credentials for the Times.

  6. Anonymous is dead and long live the chaos. Gh0st Squad is the new standard. People like Deric Lostutter killed Anonymous. Check out http://www.dericlostutter.org and you can see what an “Anon Hero” is really like. Your client Commander X is going to get everyone V& anyway. I didn’t bother listening to AnonUK whatever. You should represent some real hackers like the Syrian Electronic Army.

    1. First, please leave Deric out of it. I get grumpy every time someone drags me into a discussion of him.

      Second, I did try to reach out to represent Guccifer, teh Syrian Electronic Army, etc. They were all indicted in the Eastern District of Virginia, like the PayBack 14. I can’t represent any of them because in the Eastern District of Virginia you need a full-time sponsor attorney adn you can’t sign pleadings (court papers) etc. Basically, you have to be admitted to that court to represent someone charged there. I’m not admitted.

      They charge a lot of the big hacking adn terrorism adn other international cases there because the FBI, NSA and CIA are all headquartered in that district.

      So I would represent those people if I had a chance to do so. I think the cases would be interesting and I believe everyone is entitled to a defense, no matter what their politics.

  7. I love T0p adn G3ar! AnonUK radio is a lot of fun adn has great interviews. This one is very cool. Jay Leiderman always has something interesting to say. As much as I love T0pG3ar live, I miss Lorax!

  8. My most important recommendations are: follow the locals, sleep anytime feasible (camp under the stars) and stroll. You have to enjoy life because with teh government coming down on you you might as well get your kicks before the fascists invade your living room. Long live Anonymous. Thanks Jay for all teh work you do. riminal defense of these crimes is important to teh hive. Do the simple things!

  9. Matthew Keys got screwed by teh US government. He should never have been charged with any crime. A 40 minute deface of the LA Times is bullshit compared to the stuff that other people did. That fat fuck Sabu did 7 months and spent his time eating greasy fried chicken adn gaining 500 pounds while Keys will have to spend 2 years in a real prison. Total bullshit.

    1. Je me disais aussi qu’il n’y avait pas beaucoup de monde en ville…. Mais la quand même : Metro 0%, Tram: 46% et Bus 36% Chapeau, je pense que les velos sont pris d&auuqo;assrslt….

  10. I love AnonUK radio and this was a super cool interview with Jay Leiderman. He talks about the last vestiges of privacy and teh war on journalism – especially as it relates to Anonymous. Worth a listen. Also, T0p and G3ar are awesome hosts. It’s always great to have a radio show with a point of view from both sides of the Atlantic.

  11. It’s amazing to go to see this web page and reading the views of all colleagues on the topic off this paragraph, while I am also zealous of getting knowledge. Anon radio I like.

  12. The keys case was a sham. The government went way overboard. I can’t believe they made that a federal prosecution. Why don’t they arrest the NSA agents that were listening to their girlfriend’s conversations? They should disable the FISA Court and get their priorities straight.

  13. Commonly in the west, though folks may have organization lunches, most formal company discussions are performed in a far more formal setting.
