Look at what we got here.
It appears that the man behind the screen, former Anonymous hacker-turned snitch, Hector “Sabu” Monsegur failed to show up in court recently. Citing Concerns of “Security issues and personal threats”were mentioned by his sole representation, Peggy Cross-Goldenberg. Yesterday in Manhattan criminal courtroom of Judge Diana Boyar.
But come on Hector, really? Sack up and appear at the scheduled time why don’t ya.
Though seriously. How physically menacing and evil can a person be who dresses up in cheap suits adorned with a cute little Halloween mask? I’d take my chances. Just sayin. Though, who knows where these supposed threats stem from. Outside the group perhaps? Who knows. In addition, here is an overview of what exactly happened at the time:
When his case was called around 12:15 PM, Monsegur, pictured above, was not present in the fourth-floor courtroom of Judge Diana Boyar. Instead, lawyer Peggy Cross-Goldenberg asked the jurist to waive her client’s appearance due to “security issues and physical threats,” adding that Monsegur was concerned about his safety were he to appear at the courthouse.
After a prosecutor consented to proceed without Monsegur present, Boyar announced that his case was being adjourned for six months in contemplation of dismissal. In effect, if he stays out of trouble during that period, the misdemeanor count will be dropped.
Monsegur has reportedly been under federal protection since early-March, when his cooperation with the FBI became public. His work with the bureau resulted in the indictment of five of his former cronies from “Anonymous,” the online hacking collective.
Even though he was originally scheduled to appear in court March 12, but that plan got moved to yesterday which obviously was a lost cause from the start. In laymens terms, f.u.b.a.r (f—– up beyond all recognition). Nothing more, nothing less.
