TGIFBF!!! The end of another work week means it's time to hang out with VITB without underwear. Tonight Vince is joined by guests Sanguinarious and Cathy Elliot Jones to discuss today's mysterious delayed sentencing of the hacker-turned-federal informant known as “Sabu” amid a rekindled crackdown on so-called computer criminals. Hector Xavier Monsegur, a New York City computer hacker that became a turncoat for the FBI and helped imprison a handful of alleged members of Anonymous and its offshoots, was not sentenced in federal court on Friday as scheduled. Monsegur, 29, was arrested by federal agents on June 7, 2011, and reportedly began assisting the FBI that day. But despite already pleading guilty to a slew of crimes related to computer hacking, sentencing for Monsegur has been delayed yet again.
Since his identity was uncovered, the Sabu alias has disappeared from the Internet and in its place has emerged an angry army of Anons who have declared him a traitor and a snitch. In August of last year, US District Judge Loretta Preska granted attorneys for the hacker a six month adjournment on his sentencing just one day before it was scheduled. In it, Assistant US Attorney James Pastor said that Monsegur’s ongoing cooperation should warrant an extension, to which the court agreed and sentencing was postponed to 10 a.m. on February 22. On Friday, however, no sentencing occurred. Call in and share what's on your mind or we can talk about whatever pops up. No judgements. VITB loves you! No underpants allowed. Open lines. Call in!
