Remember two years ago, that awful time when the Playstation Network was hacked, making it impossible for Playstation 3 users to get online or sync their Trophies? Well Todd M. Miller, one of the leading suspects in the case, who was interviewed by the FBI back in 2011, managed to evade prosecution by destroying the evidence.
The 23 year old Columbus man destroyed his hard drives and PCs whilst the FBI were busy getting a warrant, and without the data in the hard drives they didn't have enough to charge him and another Columbus man for being a part of the hacking. Miller was instead charged with obstruction of federal justice, which lead to one year of house arrest. If the data in the hard drives was still intact, Miller could have faced up to 20 years in prison and a hefty $250,000 fine.
