LulzSec hacker Sabu should be sentenced today, October 25 (Updated)
Hector Xavier Monsegur, better known as Sabu of the LulzSec hacktivist group, should be sentenced today.
Monsegur should have been convicted a long time ago. However, since the government is still relying on his services, the decision has been delayed several times.
In August, the judge was asked to postpone the sentencing for October 25, 2013 at 2:30 PM “in light of the defendant’s ongoing cooperation with the Government.”
There’s a chance that the scenario will be repeated. On August 22, just before Sabu was supposed to be sentenced, another LulzSec hacker, Jeremy Hammond, revealed that the government was using Monsegur to “facilitate the hacking of targets of the government’s choosing,” including the systems of foreign governments.
Stay tuned to find out whether Sabu will finally be sentenced.
Update. Attorney Theodora Michaels has learned that Sabu will not be sentenced today. There are no additional details at this point.
