You'd think, but tampering with and/or destroying evidence can land you a LOT more jail time.
SavageKuma  +   844d ago
he owns the stuff and without a proper search in America they have to go through proper procedures and that gives any smart criminal enough time to destroy evidence that they do not know about.

He didn't tamper with and/or destroy evidence. Obviously he felt those hard drives would have eventually been used as evidence or he wouldn't have gotten rid of them, but what he did wasn't tampering with evidence in the eyes of the law. It's not evidence until it's found and logged as such during a legal search.

@Playbox360, MysticStrummer, and Lior

It is tampering even if it hasn't been officially logged in as evidence. His only defense would have been if he didn't know about the investigation. So that's why he's guilty of tampering with evidence and was sentenced to house arrest. But he probably figured better that than prison.

I'm not trying to sound like a douche here, but I got a good-humored chuckle out of the fact that a few of you thought that "tampering with/destroying evidence" constituted stealing confiscated evidence from the authorities and destroying it AFTER it had already been logged, like...Ocean's Eleven heist-style or something.

I got a good-humored chuckle out of the fact that people disagreed with me about what constitutes tampering with evidence. Even after I supplied links to the actual statutes :)
MysticStrummer  +   844d ago
@raWfodog - If you read the story you'll see he wasn't charged with tampering with evidence, so... yeah. They can't prove he tampered with anything having to do with the case. Evidence has to do with the case. Hence, he didn't tamper with evidence. He interfered with the investigation. That's not the same as evidence tampering.

EDIT - Just to be clear, they can't prove he did it so they didn't charge him with it.

Legion  +   844d ago

Your links proved nothing. The second was only opinionated advice on the first.

When getting rid of a computer it is common practice to destroy hard drive. The damage to the cases themselves... well haven't we all been pissed off with our PC enough to want to do that?

Him being questioned and then later wanting to dispose of his PC does not constitute evidence tampering. Especially if said practice of destroying HD is common place. (which is)

Had he done it while the police were at the door and or bearing down on him... well then the case might be brought up.

They did not prosecute him for destruction of evidence because of the fact they could not.

He was sentenced for obstruction simply because he basically threw himself on the mercy of the court and his lawyer knew he was looking to get a slap on the wrist.

If he had actually fought the case then it would have cost a lot of money but he still would have been very favored to walk away... but at a much greater cost to him and a drawn out trial that would have possibly lost him his job.

Not even. Just like with drinking and driving, if you crash, its only a fine for leaving the scene of an accident, instead of losing your license plus jailtime.

Hacking isnt a misdemeanor anymore.

Committing Crime 101. First Day, First Lesson - Destroy the evidence.

The FBI practically let him go when they interviewed him without a warrant to search his computers. I have no doubt that his hard drives were wiped, scrubbed with magnets, torn apart, cut into pieces at the plates, burnt, and scattered within two hours after the FBI left his house.

You have to be an idiot to keep the evidence after the FBI lets you know that they are watching you. You don't have to be an smart criminal to know better than that.

Christopher  +   844d ago
That's the problem, Darrius, they have to have reasonable suspicion to get the warrant. In this case, they were in a no-win situation on approaching this without giving their hand away at the same time.

Legion  +   844d ago

Mainly due to the fact of people doing exactly what this boy did which was throw themselves at the mercy of the court in efforts to not have a lengthy trial. And knowing they will get little but house arrest and slaps on the wrist.

And the 99% rate is highly exaggerated.

"SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Convictions are obtained in just one of four FBI cases submitted for prosecution, according to a new study of Justice Department statistics.

From 1993 through 1997, the FBI referred 222,504 cases for prosecution. Only 27%, the worst mark among major federal law enforcement agencies, resulted in a conviction, said researchers at Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, or TRAC." http://articles.latimes.com...

This was a long while ago.. but doubting they have improved to the point of 99%. Just because you read garbage on the internet doesn't make it fact. (note: you are reading this on the internet... check for yourself)

Yes but having only a GED can be really bad, yes great you're successful, but lose your job, and you're screwed. High paying jobs usual requirements will be a college/university degree. They won't even look at you without it. I went to college with this one programmer, he was the best, why noone would hire him had the be the most idiot reason,"only GED" this guy was awesome. He took the cheapest programming course he could find. I know he worked on The Darkness 2 and recently the new Star Trek game. There have been a few xbox kinect games he has worked on too, congrats to him.

I'm a tankerman. I load and unload barges, ships, and trucks of oil over water. My base pay with no overtime is 87000 a year. Last year I topped 100000 with overtime but not by much. No h.s. diploma or college degree required although you do have to work in the field and get so many supervised transfers before you can go to tankerman school.
kneon  +   844d ago

Yup there are plenty of well paying jobs that don't require much formal education. But they usually do require skills of some kind and you need to be willing to do real work.

But in general a higher education leads to higher income provided you get a degree in something useful. I have degrees in computer science and physics and broke through $100,000/year almost 20 years ago.

My original argument was directed towards mejin vejeta because he or she implied that ur a loser without at least a GED. I and plenty of other successful people don't have diplomas or degrees. Does that make us losers? While I do know that higher education can lead to a higher paying job, it isn't a definite outcome. Just like not having a diploma or degree doesn't automatically mean you can't be successful and make a comfortable living. I know plenty of people with degrees who make less than me and plenty that make more. And if you want valid data, just research the average pay for merchant mariners. My job pays 330 a day. The boat captains at my workplace are almost 600 a day. And in the marine industry there is a very high percentage of highschool dropouts.

I agree with you KNEON.Once i went to pick up my wife(she is a doctor)there was a patient there that had PHD SCIENCE etc you name it,he had studied all life and he wasnt capable of communicating like a normal person he seemed like dumb person ,no offence.So like you saying people shouldnt judge base on education.English is not my mother language before anyone jumps and says; oh you see you should have studied more years to know how to write.I couldnt study more years anyway had to migrate in different countries for a better life.Anyway,I love living in Canada ,it a country of oportunity.Lots of people born here do not appreciate this country.Before i forget,my sister in law which is educated like my wife she always looking for someone educated but never lucky always dissapointed.She has high standards ,well she is alone.I have a happy family kids.no problem moneywise cause im not greedy,i never forget who I was thats why im happy.I earn good money anyway because I worked for it and I earned it.
At my work many workers dont even say good morning or bye.that thing right there tells me they dont have future.when they do not know the basics of socialising.Life its philosofy and it will take thousands of pages for me to write so it would be wasted of time .Ive helped many people in my life but very few appreciated.
I gave up I will be very carefully before I help anyone else again.This world is filled with selfish mother fukers.have a good night everyone ,and please dont disagree cause I wont be able to sleep all night :)
Gamerjunki3  +   843d ago

That's great, the fact is your original post was comparing yourself to college students, in which you said you earn more money than some, without possessing the necessary qualifications.

You were essentially suggesting that one may not need qualifications in order to possess a higher salary--that's a fair point, but don't use personal experience as your argument.

I just wanted you realise that the point you've established was anecdotal, and has no ground in order to be a compelling argument. I have no problem with your point, just your argument.

That doesn't mean you are wrong, but how you've conducted your argument was wrong.

To answer your question, no, possessing no qualifications doesn't make anyone a loser. If there was a job which provided 100K, I would not care what the job would entail.

I'm perfectly aware that qualifications don't mean a successful future, anyone in the UK will happily tell you that!

Hell, I have just dropped from college (that would be high school to you yankees I believe).

I was doing English, History, Philosophy and Politics. With no sense with what I wanted to do, compounded with the fact I was burnt out from writing so many essays--I left.

Not having a GED, degree, etc. doesn't make someone inherently less intelligent or a loser. I've seen plenty of people who have gone through college, yet can't seem to spell simple words correctly. Some people just don't have their GED, sometimes for reasons beyond their control. Does that make them losers? No, it just means that they haven't gotten something that states they've graduated. I believe the entire US school system is fundamentally flawed, but I won't get into that right now lol.

Forensics can sometimes get information back from damaged files, however it becomes a crapshoot as broken hard drives usually = broken information.

The kid was smart. He wasn't charged with any crimes, wasn't under a specific investigation - all that was shown was a search warrant. That doesn't even mean he's a criminal, it just means that Investigators are in THE PROCESS of finding a criminal.

By destroying POTENTIAL evidence, he prevents himself from being incriminated. If they knew he had the information without a shadow of a doubt, they would have issued an ARREST WARRANT, not a SEARCH WARRANT.

Therefore, he did not destroy "Evidence" because there was no indication of a "crime" just yet.

Bro these hackers stole credit card info. Of course sony will not say it in public because complaints are confidential.

Just like some people said in this forum, destroying your computer somehow hints you are "guilty" of something. because if your not guilty, why hide something?? You know, it's acceptable they breached PSN, but what's not acceptable is that they stole some customers credit card info. I highly believe this is true, when you see a credit card info in front of you, temptation will sink in. So these hackers are the lowliest of all and should really be imprisoned.
