More spammers in the slammer

Still catching up on the week's news, I bring word that two spammers from the Arizona Spam Gang which specialized in sending hard-core porn spam to AOL users have received prison sentences.

Jeffy Kilbride and James Schaffer were convicted in June on eight charges including money laundering and transporting obscene materials. According to Bruce Sterling's article in WiReD magazine, Kilbride received six years and Schaffer received slightly over five years. They were also forced to forfeit a million dollars of ill-gotten gains.

Previously convicted were Kirk F. Rogers, Jennifer Clason of Tempe, Arizona, and Andrew Ellifson. They were allowed to skate in exchange for turning state's evidence against Kilbride and Schaffer.
