  • Teen Accused of Disrupting Xbox Live and PSN Last Christmas Gets Off With a Slap on the Wrist

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]74[/ATTACH]
    17-year-old Julius "zeekill" Kivimaki was found guilty of 50,700 charges that were brought against him. Kivimaki claims to have been part of the Lizard Squad group that claimed responsibility for bringing down Xbox Live and PlayStation Network this past Christmas.

    You would think that someone found guilty of over 50 thousand charges would come with a rather severe punishment, right? Not so if you live in Finland. The courts gave Kivimaki a two-year suspended sentence. That's essentially just giving someone some rather lenient probation. Oh, and he was ordered to fight cybercrime now instead of being the cause of it.

    Let's just hope that this doesn't spur others to become copycats. It should be noted here that those charges may not include sentencing for the Christmas attacks on PSN and Xbox Live. Those may still come at a later date.
