Florida spammer, Scott Levine was found guilty in Federal court on 120 counts of unauthorized access to data, two counts of access device fraud and one count of obstruction of justice, and now faces up to $30M in fines and 640 years in a Federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison. The owner of spam company, was caught stealing 1.6 billion user records from data-management company Acxiom Corp. No word if Acxiom got in trouble for the crappy security it had in place which allowed so much of its customer info to be pilfered. In any case, it's a happy day when one more spammer gets taken down. We have to give the Feds props for finally going after these people.
