Feds: Opelousas hacker sentenced to 1 year in prison
LAFAYETTE - Federal prosecutors say a 29-year-old Opelousas computer hacker has been sentenced to a year and a day in prison for stealing money, hacking computers and trying to sell information on a hacking forum.
On Wednesday, U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley announced that Rory Stephen Guidry was sentenced on a single count of obtaining information by computer from a protected computer.
Prosecutors say Guidry pleaded guilty to taking part in July 2014 in an online hacking attack on a computer server in Austin, Texas. At the time, Guidry was living in Liberty Hill, Texas.
