US prosecutors are recommending a sentence of time served for Monsegur. If the court follows the prosecutions recommendation, Monsegur will see no more time in prison other than the seven months he already served in 2012. The hacker worked with the FBI to identify and build cases against other LulzSec and Anonymous members, and, according to the governments statement filed in court this week, his information directly led to the arrest and convictions of eight others involved in large-scale illegal attacks on sites like Sony, Nintendo, PBS, Fox, Senate.gov, and more. Among others, his assistance helped the FBI arrest Jeremy Hammond — also known as Anarchaos — who was the agencys most wanted cybercriminal at the time of his arrest.
