Hacker Acquittal Reversed

Published tisdag 20 november 2007 kl 11.46
The Svea Court of Appeals

A Swedish appeals court has found a teenager here guilty of hacking into a number of university computer systems.

The now 19 year old from Uppsala had been acquitted by a district court. But on Monday the Svea Appeals Court reversed the lower court decision. The 19 year old has been ordered to pay damages and has received a suspended sentence for breaking into several university networks three years ago.

Following the conviction, the American FBI asked the Swedish police to investigate if the 19 year old was involved in a hacker attack at Cisco Systems. A member of the police IT squad told Swedish Radio News that such inquiries are not common, and that Swedes are not usually extradited to other countries for anything other than much more serious crimes.
