prosecuting the hell out of an 18 year old malicious hacker is like giving a 5 year old the keys to a priceless automobile and scolding the child when they wreck it....IT IS OUR SOCIETY'S FAULT that we have all this " priceless" information on computer's anyway!!!!!!!!!!!! If you dont want the data screwed with, leave it as a hard copy. Also, almost every 18 teen boy is destructive...i hope the jury is lenient and remembers that they were young once too......
