Anonymous’ Topiary gets a plea date

Jake Davis gets his time in court
Fri Jan 27 2012, 16:02

ALLEGED ANONYMOUS LINKED computer user Jake Davis was in a UK court today over hacking charges.

Davis, who apparently went by the online handle Topiary, was arrested last August and faces a charge of hacking into the web site of the UK Serious Organised Crime Agency. He was due to enter a plea today, but according to reports this will not happen until later.

"Update: Jake Davis to enter plea May 11th," says a tweet from a Twitter account associated with Anonymous.

According to a tweet from freelance journalist Ryan Gallagher, the case has been delayed because there is suspicion of involvement of other parties, possibly in the US.

"Davis' defence will find out more details, including 'letters from foreign jurisdictions', on 30 March, when new evidence entered," Gallagher tweeted.

Davis' case is linked to that of another Anonymous suspect, Ryan Cleary, who allegedly ran IRC chat rooms used by the hacktivist group. He too will enter a plea on 11 May. µ
