Thumbs up Phisher Faces 101 Years of Prison Time

Quote:
The jury found phisher Jeffrey Brett Goodin guilty not only of infringement of the Can-Spam Act, but also of 10 other counts, including misuse of AOL's trademark, witness harassment, failure to appear in court, wire fraud, and aiding and abetting the unauthorized use of credit cards. Sentencing for Goodin's convictions will be handed down on June 11, with the maximum jail time topping out at 101 years in federal prison.

The first person convicted under the Can-Spam Act of 2003 faces up to 101 years of jail time after a California jury found him guilty of multiple crimes. Jeffrey Brett Goodin was convicted in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California in Los Angeles, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Arrested last year, Goodin had been running a sophisticated phishing operation in which he posed as a member of AOL's billing department and tricked users into divulging their credit card information.
Let's hope they catch a few more

Wow, nice to see they are bringing in harsh penalties for that.
I wonder if he will actually receive a jail sentence?
