Spammers get prison sentence


A brother and sister 'spamming duo' have been convicted of sending hundreds of thousands of unsolicited e-mail messages to AOL subscribers.

The jury in Virginia recommended that the man (Jeremy Jaynes) serve 9 years in prison and that his sister (Jessica DeGroot) be fined $7,500. They were convicted under a State Law prohibiting the sending of bulk email using fake addresses.

Prosecutors had originally asked for 15 years in jail for Jaynes, and a jail term for his sister!
