As we reported earlier, the former network admin who was arrested for withholding passwords was due to be sentenced this month. A judge has now pushed the date back.
Terry Childs, San Francisco’s former network administrator, was found guilty in April of a felony charge of denying access to a computer system after a 2008 incident in which he changed the passwords to several key parts of the city’s network and refused to hand them over to city officials.
Sentencing was scheduled for June, but the hearing has been pushed back to July 2, InfoWorld reports. Defense attorneys requested the delay to get more time to prepare their arguments.
Childs faces up to five years in prison, though he’s expected to spend, at most, a few months in jail before being paroled. We’ll keep you posted.
