If all are good boys and girls [for 1 year], the felony will come off, and misdemeanor will remain with time served.

Each of the 13 will pay restitution of $5,600 to PayPal.
What about 14!?
Noobies, please note, most of the 'guest' traffic we get here on WWP are web-crawlers spawned by searches, maybe 1% scilon (like OSA blah-blah), actual 'real-life' viewers is probably much less, people open a link and leave it open etc. etc.
As for the anonymous stupids fucking with Pay-Pal etc., meh, not us here, and rather pointless and boring script-kiddy pron.

'Anonymous' hackers plead guilty to minor charge in U.S. for cyberattacks | Reuters
Four members of the hacking group Anonymous pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge on Tuesday after a judge had earlier questioned whether prosecutors had treated the defendants too harshly for their crimes.
The hackers, part of a group that gained notoriety for frequent cyber-battles with U.S. authorities, each pleaded guilty via telephone to one misdemeanor charge of conspiring to intentionally cause damage to a protected computer.
The charge carries a maximum of one year in prison and a fine of $100,000.
The four men along with nine others had been charged last October by the U.S. Attorney's office in the Eastern District of Virginia with a felony crime under which they could have faced a decade in prison.
Similar cases brought by the U.S. Attorney's office in San Jose were largely resolved through misdemeanor convictions with no jail time, and the federal judge overseeing the Virginia set of cases had asked why similar defendants were facing more severe punishment in his state.
"You've still got a disparity issue, and it's a serious one," U.S. District Judge Liam O'Grady told federal prosecutors on the case at a May hearing, according to a transcript of the proceedings.
Some of the defendants "have lived for the last three years under the gun of this investigation who otherwise have impeccable characters," O'Grady continued. "And from what I have seen right now, California got it right. And you ought to be thinking about it."
On Tuesday the four men - Phillip Simpson, Anthony Tadros, Thomas Bell and Geoffrey Commander - were allowed to call in their pleas to federal court in Virginia because the charge was a misdemeanor offense, O'Grady said.
O'Grady said it was the first plea he had handled by telephone.
Two other defendants in the case have already pleaded guilty to the same misdemeanor charge, and one more defendant is scheduled to change his plea in September. Six other suspected Anonymous hackers charged in the case are scheduled to go to trial in October.
A representative of the U.S. Attorney's office declined to comment on the case.

Pfft. Media and law enforcement have no idea what anonymous is. Calling us "anonymous hackers" (not all are hackers!) is just ignorant.

Congratulations to the PayPal 14 | Freeanons
FreeAnons would like to send congratulations to members of the PayPal 14 whose felonies were dropped today. We know they must be extremely excited and relieved to have many of their freedoms finally returned to them. They have suffered a seemingly never-ending judicial challenge in an effort to demonstrate the validity of online protest and stood directly in the cross-hairs of a system who sought to make examples of them. Restitution, however, is still required to be made and you can make a donation to assist them here: http://www.gofundme.com/7n20n4
To the members of the PayPal 14 group who had their felonies dropped today; you are strong activists and all who know you are proud of your commitment and determination in seeing this ordeal to its completion. You have been an amazing team and an inspiration to so many.
While we do not mean to deter from the much deserved celebration, we would also ask that the community please remember Dennis “Owen” Collins who was not able to accept a plea deal in this case or have his restrictions lifted. Dennis remains a defendant in the Payback 13 case as well as the Paypal 14 case. He has recently accepted the same plea deal offered to all defendants in the Payback 13 case and sentencing will be in February. After sentencing in the Payback 13 case, Dennis can address the charges he continues to face in the Paypal case. The difference is now he faces them alone.
Please take a moment as we recognize the efforts of the Paypal 14, to remember Dennis “Owen” Collins who continues to battle the legal system in not only the Paypal case but also the Payback case. If you’d like to assist Owen, FreeAnons has been accepting donations on his behalf and sending them to him. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Owen, we are sure, is very happy for his comrades today. On behalf of Owen, Welcome home Paypal 14 team. With much love from FreeAnons. Up The Rebels!
