iPad Email Address Theft Faces Charges In New Jersey

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) – One of the two people charged in the theft of more than 100,000 e-mail addresses of Apple iPad users waived a bail hearing Friday and will now face charges in New Jersey.

Andrew Auernheimer, part of a group called Goatse Security, was arrested Tuesday and faces counts of fraud and conspiracy to access a computer without authorization. Each charge carries a five-year maximum sentence.

Authorities are to take Auernheimer, 25, to New Jersey sometime in the next two weeks. His lawyer Ken Osborne says Auernheimer had little chance of making bail without employment or a family member to live with.

Daniel Spitler, 26, of San Francisco was also arrested in the case and was released on $50,000 bail Tuesday. He is due in court in New Jersey in March.
