Siggi "The Hacker" gets two years prison
Sigurður Ingi Þórðarson, better known as Siggi "The Hacker" has received a two-year prison sentence for multiple fraud and theft. The total charges add up to around 30 million ISK. The district attorney called for a two-year sentence referring among other things to a psychological evaluation which deems Þórðarson as a sociopath and a person almost without any remorse for his actions.
The judge's ruling has not been published but it is clear that the judge accepted the DA's claims.
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. He is still awaiting charges from the Reykjavik District Court for further sexual assaults on a dozen minors.
