A federal judge is expected to sentence Anonymous hacking conspirator Barrett Brown during a hearing this morning in Dallas.
Brown was arrested in 2012 and faces up to eight years in prison. He has already spent more than two years behind bars.
The 33-year-old was a writer often quoted on the workings of Anonymous, the worldwide hacking collective that has staged cyber-attacks on governments and businesses.
He pleaded guilty in April to accessory after the fact in the unauthorized access of a protected computer. He also admitted interfering with a search warrant and threatening the FBI agents who were investigating him.
