AOL Spammer Pleads Guilty, Facing Up To 11 Years in Prison

A Brooklyn man has pleaded guilty today for sending spam emails to over 1.2 million AOL subscribers in a scheme that foiled the Internet company’s spam-filtering system. Reuters reports: “Adam Vitale, 26, pleaded guilty in federal court in Manhattan to breaking anti-spam laws. He was caught making a deal with a government informant that sent spam e-mails advertising a computer security program in return for 50 percent of the product’s profits, prosecutors said.”
