US Government Sentences Hacker Who Triggered Clinton Email Probe to 52 Months in Prison:

Marcel Lazar, the 44-year-old Romanian hacker known as Guccifer, was sentenced to 52 months in prison today by a US federal court for a string of hacking incidents which centered around high-profile US political figures, including former President George W. Bush and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Lazar’s primary claim to fame was unveiling Clinton’s use of a poorly-secured private email server for official business while Secretary of State, a fact which sparked a protracted FBI investigation and considerable criticism of Clinton for security lapses, though she was ultimately not charged with any crimes for doing so.
