Sentencing of LulzSec hacker Sabu postponed to January 13, 2014
Last week, on October 25, Hector Xavier Monsegur, better known as Sabu of the LulzSec hacker collective, should have been sentenced. However, his sentencing has been once again postponed.
The government has submitted another adjournment request.
“The Government respectfully submits this letter, on behalf of both parties, to request an adjournment of the October 25, 2013 sentencing date in light of the defendant’s ongoing cooperation with the Government,” the letter to Judge Preska reads.
Authorities have asked for the sentencing to take place on January 13, 2014 at 4:00 PM. Interestingly, it appears that the letter was written in haste since the date is misspelled as January 13, 2013.
Few people were surprised on Friday after learning that the sentencing was once again postponed.
Another LulzSec hacker, Jeremy Hammond, has revealed that the US government is using Sabu to hack various organizations, including foreign governments.
