The Anonymous hacker group continues to seek equal measures of revenge, justice and reform -- preferably through chaotic means -- for perceived wrongdoings.
After numerous sentencing postponements -- at the request of the FBI and Department of Justice -- Sabu
, 29, was due to be sentenced at the end of February 2013. But that court date was again postponed, without apparent explanation.
But it turns out that the cause is simple: Sabu is continuing to help authorities. Indeed, according to court documents seen by Ars Tecnica, the sentencing hearing was postponed to Aug. 23, 2013 "in light of the defendant's ongoing co-operation with the government."
Sabu's continuing cooperation has led some to suggest that he might be let off with a suspended sentence, and without having to serve jail time.
