MegaUpload Employee Has Served His Term in US Prison

MegaUpload Employee Has Served His Term in US Prison

Andrus Nomm, one of the MegaUpload programmers indicted by the US, was sentenced to 12 months in prison earlier in 2015. After reaching a settlement with the American government and testifying against Kim Dotcom, the Estonian got his term cut to 9 months and has already been released from prison.

As you may remember, MegaUpload was shut down almost 4 years ago by the US government. So far, much of their efforts have been focused on extraditing Kim Dotcom and other MegaUpload employees to the US. In the beginning of 2015, it turned out that the US authorities had already got some valuable information.

Andrus Nomm, a programmer at the hosting service, operated under key mega figure Matthias Ortmann. Along with his former colleagues, the Estonian was included into the MegaUpload indictment, so the FBI wanted him in the United States to face criminal charges. The 36-year-old flew from the Netherlands and handed himself over to US government after 3 years due to lack of funds. Back in February 2015, Andrus Nomm was arrested and carried through with a deal he’d promised to cut with the government.

Kim Dotcom supported an “innocent coder”, saying he had nothing but compassion and understanding for the Estonian. Now, after serving just 9 months in prison, Nomm was released. However, his evidence is already being used against Kim Dotcom. What exactly he said to the US authorities is unknown, but the suggestions are that Nomm has stated on the record that Kim Dotcom and others knowingly profited from copyright violation. Anyway, Dotcom doesn’t blame him: 3 years in limbo and a year in jail will have had a considerable impact on the programmer’s life. The agreement he has reached with the US authorities means that he can get on with his life. Dotcom and his former colleagues can’t boast the same.

It is known that the MegaUpload programmer plead guilty to 2 counts of conspiracy to violate copyright – these charges are denied by Dotcom and other MegaUpload top managers. In addition, the United States also dropped the money laundering and racketeering charges against him, which is unlikely to happen in Dotcom’s case. The conviction of Andrus Nomm allowed the American authorities to claim he has given them much more evidence than has been revealed thus far.

analogkid6103 avatarKinda ruins the idea of anyone being "trusted".
But not unexpected.
In the digital age and with future tech.
How will they bring you down?
The old fashioned way...with a RAT.
