We had a noteworthy news submission from Russ who had just "attended Christopher Maxwell's sentencing today in Seattle and at 4:45 PST in the case of the US vs. Christopher Maxwell,  Mr. Maxwell was sentenced to three years incarceration, followed by three years probation and will pay approximately $250,000 in combined restitution to DoD and Northwest Hospital. He may ultimately pay more restitution to a school district he wreaked havoc on in his adware for dollars campaign.
Ring one up for the good guys...the US Attorney Kathryn Warma was excellent and the Judge was incredibly fair and deliberate in her judgement."
