For his continuous cooperation with law-enforcement and with the U.S. government, the U.S. District Court released a document that delays the date of his sentence with 6 months.

After Monsegur and his lawyers approved the delay, the new date for the sentencing was set to 22 February next year. Monsegur was arrested on 7 June 2011 and was investigated for a long time against many hacks that were associated with the hacker group LulzSec during 2011. He pleaded guilty to all twelve criminal charges and could now face up to 124 years behind bars.

Sabu helped FBI build cases for months against other hackers that attacked U.S. Senate, Pentagon, CIA and even FBI. But his help did not stop here. He offered detailed information about all his LulzSec buddies and everyone affiliated with their group. While undercover he lured the 19-year old hacker Cleary into a discussion that helped F.B.I. send him back to jail for parole violation.

So much for standing up for what you believe in! But hopefully all the snitching will at least make it easy on his final sentence.
