Spammers face longer jail terms

Denver ruling sets precedent


U.S. spammers could find themselves facing long stretches in prison if a Denver judge's sentencing sets a precedent.

U.S. District Court Judge Lewis Babcock decided that the law meant that Min Kim needed to be sentenced to between 30 and 37 months for spamming activities. The fact Kim was a first time offender meant that he would receive 30 months inside. The sentence is about 20 percent more than Kim would have received if he had not made as much as $250,000 from spamming.

Microsoft says that the ruling means that in cases where there's a large amount of profit being realized, there is now the potential for a significant increase in sentence time.
