Teen Pleads Guilty to "Swatting" and Harassment by Computer

On Wednesday, a Canadian 17-year-old pleaded guilty to 23 charges relating to swatting calls and other false police reports, many of which had targeted his online opponents in the video game League of Legends.

According to a lengthy report by Canadian publication Tri-City News, the prosecution's case against the Coquitlam, British Columbia teenager asserted that the teen (whose name wasn't released due to his age) targeted "mostly young, female gamers" who declined or ignored his friend requests on LoL and Twitter.

The most notable example was an University of Arizona in Tucson college student who'd dropped out after she and her family members had been victimized by repeated swatting calls (including this nearly simultaneous attack on both the woman and her parents), financial information theft, "text bombs," false cell phone service orders, and intrusions into her e-mail and Twitter accounts. According to prosecutors, the months of attacks against this woman began on September 16 when the teen called Tucson police as if he were at her address, "claiming he had shot his parents with an AR15 rifle, had bombs, and would kill the police if he saw any marked vehicles," the report stated.

The report also mentioned an incident on December 1 in which the teenager posted an eight-hour video stream of himself making fake bomb and ransom threats to various police stations. Ars was able to locate an archive of this video which included the same Grove City, Ohio police call described in the Tri-City News report (the specific, offending snippet can be found here). In that call, which he made using Google Voice, he described a hostage situation in which he had bound and gagged a family, was (again) wielding an AR15, had planted "six bombs" around their home, and demanded a $20,000 ransom.

How embarrassing you have the same charges and are being accused of doing things that teenagers do...

You should try to be a real man for once in your life and do the same and plead guilty, little boy...

Why doesn't he go stalk and harass the convicted sex offenders and child molesters who live right next door to him and are much more deserving than some random strangers who did nothing to him on a message board in a city where he doesn't even live?

>Canadian 17-year-old

This means time served right? He is a baby -- a minor -- not an adult. He didn't know what he was doing. At 17 you can barely tie your shoes. In fact, I am surprised he was able to use a phone. This makes me things HE WAS SET UP BY THE POLICE!

Josh Dugger was a teen when he made the "mistake" of having his penis end up in his four year old sister's mouth multiple times...he just confessed, repented for his sins and all is forgiven and he won't serve any time for the multiple counts of child molestation...

He thought so too. Eesh doesn't have to worry since he already sold or destroyed his computer.
