Sabu is still helping FBI, Gets 6-Month Sentencing Delay


It's been almost one year since the leader of the Lulzsec collective 'Sabu' started to work for the FBI as an informer. He should have been sentenced on August 22, but the sentencing is postponed for six months due to his continued cooperation with the feds.

Hector Xavier Monsegur, a 28-year-old New Yorker who used the online name “Sabu,” has been working undercover for the feds since the FBI arrested him without fanfare June,2011.

Monsegur provided agents with information that helped them arrest several suspected members of LulzSec and Antisec, including two men from Great Britain, two from Ireland and an American in Chicago.


It was unclear from the court filing Tuesday whether Monsegur continues to be active online or is simply aiding the government in its prosecutions of those already arrested, according to Wired.
 
“The Government respectfully submits this letter to request a six-month adjournment of the August 22, 2012, sentencing control date set in the above-captioned matter in light of the defendant’s ongoing cooperation with the Government. Pursuant to his cooperation agreement, the defendant consents to the requested adjournment,” the court document reads.
