06/30/2006 Archived Entry: "Shadowcrew: Hm. Sure were light sentences"
ABOUT THOSE SHADOWCREW SENTENCES. Debra blogged earlier today about a co-founder of Shadowcrew.com being sentenced -- the latest of several. But hm. If Shadowcrew was truly the world center for identity theft that the feds claim, how come all those sentences are so short? Two years and eight months for an alleged mastermind? And that's the longest imposed so far. Interesting.
Shadowcrew definitely was a dangerous -- though highly interesting! -- place. But something doesn't add up here. (As so often seems, with those highly dramatic, well-publicized fed prosecutions.)
