AOL insider gets 15 months

Although have the media outlets on the planet have already reported this, and the other half will report it tomorrow, I thought since Spamroll is NOT a Time Warner asset, I would happily report it as well.

Jason Smathers, the ex-AOL employee that snatched over 90 million AOL usernames and sold them to spammers, has been sentenced to 15 months in the slammer. He begins serving his time in a Pensacola, FL “Club Fed” type prison in mid-September.

Smathers got $28,000 for the list – he’s going to lose more than a year of potential gainful employment as a result. Good job Jason!
