Yahoo reports that a 17 year-old kid was sentenced to 18 months probation for using an unsecured internet connection of a neighbor.  Apparently, the teenager’s modem was “confiscated” by his mother which prompted him to look for open wi fi access point.

During the course of the probation, the teenager will also be denied access to the internet because he has been diagnosed to have an addiction to online gaming. [talk about cruel and unusual –talkintech]
