Hacker Guccifer Pleads Guilty to Hacking Bush Emails

Hacker Guccifer Pleads Guilty to Hacking Bush Emails

Wednesday, 25 May 2016 12:28 PM

The Romanian hacker known as Guccifer will serve at least two years in prison after pleading guilty to breaking into computer accounts of the Bush family and others.

Forty-four-year-old Marcel Lazar pleaded guilty Wednesday morning at a hearing in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, to unauthorized access to computers and identity theft. The conviction carries a mandatory minimum of two years and a possible maximum of seven years.

Lazar is best known for hacking the email account of a Bush family member and revealing private family photos and paintings connected to former presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.

Lazar also made news earlier this month with unsubstantiated claims he hacked into Hillary Clinton's private email server. The plea deal does not address that allegation.
