Alleged hacker gets 3 months in jail to await trial
SANTO DOMINGO. – A National District judge on Thursday sent alleged ID thief and hacker Jose A. Gomez (Jochy) to spend three months in Najayo prison to await trial, as the Office of the Prosecutor had requested.
Judge Jose Alejandro Vargas’ ruling handed down 2:50pm is based on evidence that Gomez hacked the email accounts of at least 44 businesspersons, government officials and other personalities.
The judge’s ruling comes after prosecutors filed evidence showing that the defendant had established an alleged working agreement with a company named Activehacker since 2007.
When the company’s profile was vetted, it was found that Gomez figures on its Website, with a business relationship.
Vargas’ ruling also takes into account the prosecution’s well structured evidence to show the perpetration of a serious crime, such as the hacking of a Government Website.
