Hacker who helped expose a rape case is pleaded guilty, faces more jail time than rapists






A Kentucky man who, in 2012, hacked into an online account for followers of a Ohio high school's football team to expose a gang rape of a teenage girl has pleaded guilty to charges associated with the hack. He is facing a longer term than the rapists.
Earlier this week, Deric Lostutter, 29, known online as "KYAnonymous," pleaded guilty in federal court in Kentucky to one count of conspiracy and one count of making false statements to law enforcement agents for his hack of the Steubenville (Ohio) High School football fan website Roll Red Roll in December 2012.
Lostutter has said he hacked into the site to expose information about the gang rape of an unconscious teenage girl from West Virginia by members of the football team. Two of those team members, Trent Mays and Malik Richmond, were eventually sentenced to serve time — two years and one year, respectively — in a juvenile detention center for rape and kidnap.
The Roll Red Roll site was hacked with a video from "KYAnonymous" which showed evidence of the 2012 rape, including video taken and shared by the crime's perpetrators in which they joked about the assault. The hack also included threats to disclose details of the school faculty members and parents involved in covering up the rape if those who were responsible didn’t come forward and apologize.
