Accused LulzSec Hacker Pleads Not Guilty in Sony Case

Ryan Whitwam

Accused LulsSec hacker Cody Kretsinger has plead not guilty to charges including conspiracy, and unauthorized impairment of a protected computer. Kretsinger, age 23, is alleged to have gone by the name “recursion” in the hacker collective and had a direct hand in the attack on Sony Entertainment Pictures earlier this year that exposed the personal details of thousands of people.

The prosecution claims that Kretsinger assisted in the attack, as well as posting personal information to the group’s Twitter account. "From a single injection we accessed EVERYTHING," LulzSec said at the time. There have been accusations that some of the same individuals may have been involved with the PlayStation Network hack as well, but this case relates only the the smaller Sony Pictures hack.

If found guilty, Kretsinger could face up to 15 years in prison. None of the other members of LulzSec, or Anonymous (which LulzSec is reportedly associated with) have been charged in this particular attack.
