Here’s another hit to George ‘I Totally Believe In Things…Like Plea Bargins’ Hotz’ street credentials. He is walking free these days after cutting a deal with Sony and their Robotic Ninja Deathsquad, while another PS3 hacker is about to serve some time.
Fellow hacker Alexander “graf_chokolo” Egorenkov, whose home was raided in February by police, has written on his blog that with his money having run out to fight Sony in court, he is “going to jail soon probably because [he] cannot pay court costs.”
Last we heard Egorenkov was being sued by Sony for â‚¬1,000,000. That’s obviously a sum the average human can’t ever pay back, hence the preparation for alternative punishment.
See, Hotz! That’s a real ideological warrior, right there. Ah, I’m not fooling anyone. You know that dude would take any deal thrown at him too.
