“Spam King” Pleads Guilty In U.S. Federal Court

From Slashdot

“It looks like ‘Spam King’ Adam Vitale has finally plead guilty to violation of the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 in federal court in New York City. ‘The indictment said that in less than a week in August 2005, Vitale and Moeller sent e-mails on behalf of the informant to more than 1,277,000 addresses of subscribers at AOL, the online division of Time Warner Inc. Vitale will be sentenced on September 13 when he faces a maximum sentence of 11 years in prison. Moeller, who lives in New Jersey, faces the same charge.’ We discussed Vitale’s arrest back in February.”
