Self-proclaimed LulzSec leader to be tried in July



Trial of alleged 'international mastermind' shrunk to TWO WHOLE DAYS in court

After repeated delays by prosecutors, alleged LulzSec “leader” Matthew Flannery has finally had a trial date set, for July this year, in a case expected to last just two days.

Working under the name Aush0k, Flannery was originally pitched to the media as a “significant risk” and a “leader” of LulzSec, a claim many doubted at the time, especially when it emerged that his victim was the Website of a small and remote regional council in New South Wales.

While the Australian Federal Police was pleased as punch with its pinch, in the year since the arrest, the Commonwealth Department of Public Prosecutions has sought repeated adjournments of the trial.

Because of the AFP's claim that Flannery was “in a position of trust” at his employer, Content Security, the company was obliged to go public to state that the accused was on a three-month probation with no access to customer data.
