MalwareTech Pleads Guilty

Marcus Hutchins signed a plea agreement that was entered today. He pleads guilty to two charges of conspiracy, and the other eight charges are dismissed. If I’m doing the math on the sentencing guidelines correctly, he may be facing 6-12 months, though the government has the option of making a significant upward departure.

I’m still buried in the Mueller Report, so won’t have more on this now. It’s a sad result. And testament that justice is a lot different for people like MalwareTech than for Don Jr.
