I noticed here the other day that the judge and the fcc recomended that kevin be allowed to renew his amateur radio license, http://www.kevinmitnick.com/fcc/fcc.html and I quote, (near the very bottom) "IV. ULTIMATE CONCLUSIONS Kevin David Mitnick committed serious crimes. However, he has paid his debt to society, both with five years of imprisonment and by apologizing and making restitution to many of the entities harmed by his crimes. The evidence indicates that he has experienced a dramatic change of attitude and is living the life of a responsible citizen. It is concluded, therefore, that he has been adequately rehabilitated and that he possesses the requisite character to remain a Commission licensee. Accordingly, the applications of Kevin David Mitnick for renewal of his amateur station and operator licenses should be GRANTED." Just thought some people might be interested.
