a couple of brief corrections and/or additions:
the judge is "Lacy Thornburg" not "Thornburgh" as AP reports. useful if
you want to see his other cases and upcoming sentences etc.
Brian Salcedo is not a first time offender. at 17 he cracked arbornet and
the university of maryland and became the first to be arrested in michigan
for cracking.
