It seems that LulzSec hacker known as "Sabu" has as a result of his ongoing cooperation with law enforcement been able to secure himself a Six month delay in sentencing. In a court document filed on Tuesday in the US District Court and signed by Assistant US Attorney James Pastore, Jr. it is asked that the court to adjourn the scheduled sentencing for the 28 year-old Hector Xavier Monsegur for six months "in light of the defendant's ongoing cooperation with the Government."
The defendant, Monsegur approved the request, which was also signed by his attorneys. His sentencing is now scheduled for February 22, 2013.
Monsegur was arrested in June 2011 following the investigation of attacks against Visa, MasterCard and PayPal. He struck a plea deal with law enforcement in August last year and provided them detailed information of the LulzSec group and others. This information lead to the arrest other various members of LulzSec including Jake Davis (a.k.a opiary) and UK hacker Ryan Cleary. He even was instrumental in the re-arrest of Ryan Cleary after he attempted to contact Sabu while on bail and thus breaking hist bail conditions.
At the end of the day Monsegur may get when his sentencing actually happens, he plead guilty to 12 criminal charges and could face 124 years in prison should he receive the maximum allowed for each sentence. However, that is unlikely given that would only be a plea deal an idiot would agree too.
