Second Defendant Pleads Guilty in Prosecution of Major International spam Operation

U.S. Newswire reports that Kirk F. Rogers of Manhattan Beach, California has pled guilty to one count of spamming under the CAN-SPAM act. Rogers is accused of having developed and managed the computer system used by three other people.

Also indicted: Jennifer R. Clason of Tempe, Arizona; Jeffrey A. Kilbride of Venice, California, and James R. Schaffer of Paradise Valley, Arizona.

Previously pled guilty: Andrew Ellifson of Scottsdale, Arizona.

The U.S. Newswire report makes heavy emphasis on the fact that these spammers are charged with transmitting obscene emails. For my part, I wish the emphasis was more on the spam than on the content.

Update: Jennifer Clason has also pled guilty. See my March 8 post.
