US hacktivist sentenced to ten years for Stratfor raid

A SELF-described anarchist and 'hacktivist' from Chicago has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for illegally accessing computer systems of law enforcement agencies and government contractors.

Prosecutors said the cyber attacks were carried out by the global hacking group Anonymous.

Jeremy Hammond was caught last year with the help of Hector Xavier Monsegur, a world famous computer hacker known as Sabu.

More than 250 people write letters of support for Hammond.

His lawyers had asked he be sentenced to 20 months in prison.

Hammond told the judge he hacked into the sites in retaliation for the arrests of Occupy Wall Street protestors.
