    I’d say max. 20 years per count is a little excessive – albeit it’s the maximum but even the thought if a few years per count really bites. Poor guy – I don’t feel sorry for him as he did commit a crime but at 26, his life just might be ruined.

    Why would someone actually say, “Free Internet Access — Hacked Modems”? It basically gives you away, plus, if you cannot afford internet, than why should you have it? Get a job! Now this guy is facing 20+ years in prison, plus a possible $250,000 fine! I don’t think it was worth it, I sure wouldn’t be doing something like that!
