Sentencing postponed in Pitt online threats case

By The Associated Press

Sentencing has been postponed for an Ohio man who claimed to have hacked into the University of Pittsburgh's computer system.

Twenty-six-year-old Brett Hudson, of Hillsboro, Ohio, pleaded guilty in October. His co-defendant, Alexander Waterland, of Loveland, Ohio, has already been sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison.

Lawyers requested the extension Tuesday.

The men claimed to be members of the hacking group Anonymous who had obtained confidential information on students and faculty. The hacking threats were posted anonymously on YouTube in spring 2012 as the university finished dealing with a series of unrelated bomb threats that had plagued the campus.
