T-Mobile hacker gets house arrest


 

Posted: 31 Aug 2006

Over a year and a half after pleading guilty to stealing customer information from T-Mobile USA, Nicholas Lee Jacobsen has been sentenced to one year of house arrest. Jacobsen stole information on about 400 T-Mobile customers who used the popular Sidekick device. Among the compromised users was a US Secret Service agent, though no investigation was harmed.

"I did some very stupid things," Jacobsen told U.S. District Judge George King at his sentencing Monday in Los Angeles.

Besides the year of home detention, Jacobsen must pay $10,000 in restitution to T-Mobile. The maximum penalty was five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
