Email list thief faces up to 55 years in prison

One final item to cross my desk today: One William Bailey, Jr has been indicted in Philadelphia with 11 counts of computer intrusion. Bailey operates which sells professional organization member databases, presumably to spammers.

In particular, Bailey is charged with gaining unauthorized access to the computer at American College of Physicians and downloading their membership database.

In theory, Bailey faces up to 55 years in prison and $2.75M in fines.

See for the full story.
