A Spammer may get Jail Time
I did not know where to post this.....
A grand jury has now indicted 36-year old Howard Carmack. 'The Buffalo Spammer' faces 12 years behind bars if convicted on all counts. Carmack walked into Erie County Court this afternoon for arraignment on the grand jury charges. He remains a free man on a $20,000 bond.
This is believed to be the first case in judicial history to prosecute someone on charges stemming from sending out too many mass marketing emails, known as "spam."
It's also the first case in state history involving New York's new identity theft laws.
