Siggi "The Hacker" admits guilty to all charges
The case against Siggi "The Hacker" has undergone a sharp turn-around. Siggi has decided to change his plea to "Guilty". Charges against him amount to thirty pages of embezzlement and fraud amounting to thirty million kronas.
Originally Siggi pleaded "Not Guilty" and the main trial was to take place in Reykjanes district court next week. His lawyer, Vilhjálmur H.Vilhjálmsson said at court today that "After going over the charges thoroughly and speaking with my client he has decided to plead guilty to all charges."
Sigurður Ingi Þórðarsson, aka Siggi The Hacker, began hacking computers at the age of twelve and at eighteen he was a longtime volunteer for Wikileaks with direct access to Assange. Later he became the first known FBI informant inside Wikileaks.
In October 2013 Þórðarsson was sentenced to 8 months imprisonment for sexual assault on a minor.
