Bill O’Reilly & Ann Coulter Website Hacker Sentenced

The 23-year-old student hacker, Mitchell Frost, who hacked into the websites of Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and fellow FNC personality and conservative pundit, Ann Coulter, was sentenced to 30 months in prison.

Along with the prison sentence, Frost has been ordered to pay restitution: $40,000 to O’Reilly and $10,000 to the University of Akron, where the student had been studying during the crime.

The Ohio student pleaded guilty in May to using school computers and networks to access the sites. Between August 2006 and March 2007, Frost hacked into Rudy Giuliani’s Joinrudy2008.com, Billoreilly.com and Anncoulter.com.
