Man gets 3 years for hacking police websites

John Anthony Borell III walks from the U.S. District Court Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013, in Salt Lake City. Borell, 22, linked to the hacker collective Anonymous was sentenced Thursday to three years in federal prison for breaking into police and other websites across the country. Borell III of Toledo pleaded guilty to computer fraud in April and agreed to pay $227,000 in damages to computer servers that had to be repaired or beefed up for security. In early 2012, Borell attacked a server for Utahchiefs.org, a website for Syracuse, N.Y., police, the municipal website of Springfield, Mo., and a site for the Los Angeles County Police Canine Association, according to a signed plea deal.
