I cannot even believe this was prosecuted after MIT and ALL possible victims of this crime did NOT want Swartz prosecuted!!! At best this should have been a Civil case between MIT and Swartz but MIT clearly did not want to pursue this.
This kid was a computer genius and could have contributed so much to the world it saddens me see this story. When i see what this prosecutor put this boy though over a 2 year period of hell, threats, million dollar fines, bankruptcy, potential years in prison all because he happened to be a computer genius with reasonable good cause and sure...maybe he made a poor judgement decision like all 24 year olds do.... but this kid never did drugs, never been arrested, great student, etc.
