LulzSec Hackers Get Record Jail Sentences
Members of LulzSec, the organisation that claimed to have hacked Sony, Nintendo, Electronic Arts, the CIA and FBI, have been arrested and sentenced in the United Kingdom. The four members of the organisation have earned the longest-ever UK jail sentence for hacking.
It was reported that one member was given 32 months of jail time–the longest sentence ever under the Computer Misuse Act 1990. Another member was given 30 months, and following that, the main publicist for LulzSec received 24 months in a young offender institution.

The youngest member, an 18-year old, was sentenced to a 20 month suspended sentence as well as 300 hours of community service.
Following this, the four LulzSec members face possible extradition to the United States for further charges.
Other arrests have been made, in the United States and Australia, however they have not yet been charged.
Looks like LulzSec did make their mark–as the guys with the highest sentence for hacking, in the UK.
