PostSubject: LulzSec hacker-turned-snitch Sabu mysteriously avoids sentencing   Sun Feb 24, 2013 11:09 am



The sentencing of the hacker-turned-federal informant known as “Sabu” has been mysteriously put on hold amid a rekindled crackdown on so-called computer criminals.

Hector Xavier Monsegur, a New York City computer hacker that became a turncoat for the FBI and helped imprisona handful of alleged members of the Anonymous movement and its offshoots, was not sentenced in federal court on Friday as scheduled. Monsegur, 29, was arrested by federal agents on June 7, 2011, and reportedly began assisting the FBI that day. But despite already pleading guilty to a slew of crimes related to computer hacking, sentencing for Monsegur has been delayed yet again.

Monsegur’s work as a confidential informant was only speculated until the March 2012 arrests of other alleged members of Anonymous, including Jeremy Hammond, when it was revealed that while using the alias “Sabu,” the single father of two assisted authorities in netting hacktivists involved in the underground movement.

"Since literally the day he was arrested, the defendant has been cooperating with the government proactively," Assistant U.S. Attorney James Pastore said at a secret bail hearing two months after Monsegur first began aiding the FBI. “There is every reason to believe that by continuing the defendant's bail, by allowing him to continue to mitigate harm from cyberattacks, to continue to develop evidence against other targets, that will able to mitigate cybercrime and also apprehend some pretty serious cybercriminals.”

Since his identity was uncovered, the Sabu alias has disappeared from the Internet and in its place has emerged an angry army of Anons who have declared him a traitor and a snitch. Then in August of last year, US District Judge Loretta Preska granted attorneys for the hacker a six month adjournment on his sentencing just one day before it was scheduled. In it, Assistant US Attorney James Pastor said that Monsegur’s ongoing cooperation should warrant an extension, to which the court agreed and sentencing was postponed to 10 a.m. on February 22. On Friday, however, no sentencing occurred.
