A Tennessee man, found guilty of cracking the Gmail account of Miley Cyrus and posting private photos of her online, has asked the sentencing judge to spare him prison because of his diminutive stature. A teenaged Josh Holly was arrested by federal investigators three years ago after he correctly guessed the security question to …
And what does
Miley Cyrus get for creating the images of a 15year old child in the first place?
The whole Smiley Virus thing is beyond odd. Are you sure she isn't Jeannette Krankey?
He wasn't charged with accessing Miley's account, he was charged because they found stolen credit card numbers when investigating the Miley incident. Also, she was covered in all of the pictures, so no issue on her part.
"Looking to avoid painful stretch inside"
Wow, it must be Friday.
I'm 6'5" and 225 pounds - does that mean I might be able to skip out of any future prison sentence beause I'm too large for the big house?
You're only too large for the small house.
Throw him in the pokey!
They'll change his name from "Holly" to "Holler".
must I be to be ineligible for gaol time?
Just askin', won't follow the links.
Solomon Grundy is clearly too thin to do time.
They have one of those fareground signs...
...saying "You must be this tall to go on this ride"
RE: They have one of those fareground signs
However, in jail you're the ride :P
I'd have thought that admitting any interest in Miley Cyrus was punishment enough for anybody.
Looking to avoid painful stretch inside - I am now reminded of the old Scouse saying "She is as lose as a sausage down a alleyway."
He shouldn't be scared, there is a big hairy guy waiting to protect him ...
from every threat, in return for certain favours. They like youth in the Big House.
Options in the joint
He can sell his mad lite hacking skills to get the dope for his buoys. Perhaps try his hand at bustin' a rock with the play-ahs on the chain gang. There is always offering tax filing services to the guards for a bit extra face time. Let's not forget that he could teach all those other inmates the finer points of online banking using other people's accounts. Or, he could turn the tables and just own being the bitch while breaking out the weights and protein drinks.
"Painful stretch inside"
You guys _crack_ me up...
Short People got no reason
"They got grubby little fingers / And dirty little minds / They're gonna get you every time"
Then again, IIRC, the Caterpillar told Alice that "Three inches is a very good height indeed", so it's all relative.
....^^^.... This would be an amazing amount of beer, then, Mr. Caterpillar sir?
Actually, Randy's song was more about dwarfs aka midgets than about 'under average' people.
Dwarfs != midgets
Midgets' limbs and heads are proportionately small, whereas dwarfs may have (eg) tiny legs but 'normal' sized heads / hands etc.
Doesn't matter, most people think they're the same anyway.
I guess you're from slashdot? where they also believe Hacker =! Cracker?
Some people really like to split hairs on the internet. :P
Enjoy the slammer hacker
He who hacks goes to prison.
Nice try troll
But I "hack" about with code all the time. Let me know what charges I could be facing.
Hacking aint illegal
Your ignorance of the law disturbs me!
That would only be a troll on Slashdot
Here, you are allowed to use the word "hack" in the form commonly accepted by 99% of the English-speaking population. Failing that, it is also permissible to accept that words may have multiple meanings. It is also acceptable to determine the implied meaning of the word from the context of the article (this article is not about programming). Anything else is just trolling, man ...
Opportunity always strikes at the right moment.
in his case , you got a fantastic opportunity to become the world's fastest runner by having a bunch of angry mates running after you .Life's great behind bars if you can recognise and seize the opportunities.Have a nice stay and do enjoy your new friends. See you at the olympics
"I’m having these strong urges to start playing around and hacking shit again, there’s so much new stuff on the net. I can’t stop these urges. Am I a bad person?”
Yes. Bang the little sh*t up.
Agree with you there mate
I was actually feeling sorry for the little turd right up until I read that bit about him posting that comment on Facebook - at which point any sympathy I might have felt went straight down the gurgler. He's begging not to go to prison while openly admitting he's planning to offend again? My next thought was chuck the little shit inside and toss the fucking key!
I, for one, am hoping that he wins this ruling...
At 5'6", I plan on going on a short crime spree. I might do a little time, but that's a small price to pay.
Don't ask Bubba why his momma don't write ;-)
Read the quote starting:
"The government does not contest the presence of the various factors pointed out by probation..."
To paraphrase it says yes, he is quite short, no, that isn't of any relevance to the sentence.
The only thing they are "bizarrely" agreeing is the fact that 5'6 is quite short.
In the Netherlands 5'6" is very short
At a shade under 5'11 (1.80m) I was the third shortest guy in my year
"am I a bad person?"
He's Bubba's li'l puppy now..
I thought Id heard 'em all. Must be hard to keep a straight face sometimes, if you're a judge...
Given that he has already ignored the court order keeping him off the Internet I predict he'll be complaining his cell mate is too long for him within the month.
Important part at the end...
I was thinking this was a little over the top for guessing a password, but then you mentioned the stolen credit card numbers at the end. Between that and the facebook stupidity of publicly posting that you can't obey the judge, then perhaps he does need a little negative reinforcement time...
Stolen credit card numbers?
lock him up for a bit.
Guessed a password big deal, give him the same that he would if it was Joe Blow's password (nothing). So what if it is some "important" person.
Negative reinforcement is not the same as punishment - in fact, it's the opposite of punishment.
I assume Miley Cyprus is a young woman?
5' 6" IS SMALL?
Or are American inches smaller than ours?
The US disproportionately locks up young black (African American) men. Those with a deal of African heritage tend on average to be taller than the average for those with Caucasian ancestry.
In the Netherlands 5'6" is very short
At 1.80m (just shy of 5'11") I was one of the shortest guys in my year when I left secondary school. In the US I gather my length fairly average. 5" shorter would be quite short then.
It's not height that matters...
Bitch for a year
Being Bubba's bitch-for-a-year might teach this loser a little respect.
Is that Miley Cyrus on the pic? She looks like the *adorable* Sophie Marceau...
My cell, my rules
Heavily Tattooed Thug: "Today we're going to play mummies and daddies, which part do you want to play?"
Josh Holly: "I'd like to play Daddy please"
HTT: "Okay - come over here and suck mummy's cock"
I expect he's worried about....
his Achy Breakey Arse.
I hope he gets... "The Best of Both Worlds" and "the climb" up in the prison social ladder...
