Android Pirate App Store Operator Avoids Jail

Back in 2012, a unique FBI operation shut down a few pirate Android app stores, with operators being arrested. Now one of them went to trial, but the jury failed to reach a decision and declared a mistrial.

4 years ago, the FBI in collaboration with the French and Dutch police shut down the “pirate” Android stores Appbucket, Applanet and SnappzMarket. During the last years, several people connected to those services have been arrested and indicted, and now these cases are reaching their conclusions – for example, one of the PR managers was handed a 46-month prison sentence for conspiracy to commit copyright infringement.

Most of the site operators had pleaded guilty to get a reduced sentence, but the Applanet owner decided to move to trial instead. Initially, David Lee was charged with aiding and abetting criminal copyright infringement, conspiring to infringe copyrights and violating the DMCA’s anti-circumvention provision. However, later the prosecution voluntarily dropped the criminal copyright infringement charge. As for the remaining charges, many witnesses were heard, but the jury eventually failed to reach a verdict, and a mistrial was declared. This means that the site operator has not been found guilty.

In the jury instructions the defense hammered on the fact that the US authorities must prove that the conspiracy took place in the District of Georgia, even if David Lee never set foot there. Apparently, the jury couldn’t reach a unanimous decision on that point or any of the other key points.

The Department of Justice said that they were evaluating the outcome and considering their options. It can ask for a retrial, but for now, the pirate app store operator remains out of prison.

analogkid6103 avatarGood for him. They overcharged him in the first place and than tried to force a plea. Its the same as it always was.
So Clob is correct.
