Wow. 18 months. That'll show him!
That seems pretty steep

For extorting dozens of people? Had he been a mobster who extorted dozens of people IRL for money, he'd have gotten twenty years. But because it's on the computer, so apparently it's not really "real" or something, and he just extorted these girls for sex, 18 months is fine.

But yeah 9 months is still steep, considering his career outlook is probably permanently damaged

Oh noes, the poor guy's career outlook! How COULD society be so cruel?

Heh, I found this comment interesting:

In Monday’s press release, the US Attorney’s Office also offered this warning, which should be obvious to anyone by now: “Computer users should cover their webcams when they are not in use.”

This used to be something everyone used as an example of people being way too paranoid. Now it's just...obvious you should do it?

Luckily my laptop lid stays mostly closed as I use the HDMI out most of the time.

You probably know this but, people usually have to only serve half of the sentence for good behavior. But yeah 9 months is still steep, considering his career outlook is probably permanently damaged since employers often do background checks nowadays.

But it's not like the nine months is going to 'correct' him or anyone else, even though they call it a correction facility.

Perpetual debt is slavery.

Yeah, that word has definite ring to it and not all negative at that.

When I read "Sextortionist" I thought it meant Sexual Contortionist. That would have been a far more interesting incident and article.

That was my hope uh, thought too. Oh well.

18 months doesn't seem unduly strict. Plenty of hackers get sentences that far exceed their crime but extortion is a different matter.
