Case Conclusion Date: 02.05.2014
Practice Area: Federal Crime
Outcome: 3 years of probation
Description: The Federal Bureau of Investigation initiated an investigation against our client, a member of the activist collective Anonymous, for computer fraud based on the client's allegedly participating in a distributed denial of service ("DDOS") attack on a corporate website as a part of Operation Wisconsin or "#OpWisconsin," purportedly causing over $1 million in damages. Prior to the government's indicting our client, we convinced the federal prosecutors to enter into an agreement by which our client would enter a plea of guilty to a Class A misdemeanor with an affirmative recommendation for a sentence of probation.
