John Ojakovoh and Graeme Molloy secure convictions in cyber crime case at Blackfriars Crown Court

John Ojakovoh (Leader) and Graeme Molloy (Junior) prosecuting for the CPS International Justice and Organised Crime Division following a National Crime Agency investigation recently secured convictions for two offences under s3A(2) of the Computer Misuse Act 1990 and a money laundering offence. The defendant after a late change of plea to Guilty was sentenced to a total of 24 months’ immediate imprisonment. The case was unusual in that the defendant himself did not carry out computer hacking but ran an online business selling software designed by him to disguise viruses so that they by-passed anti-virus software thereby enabling other cyber criminals to commit hacking offences.
