March 17, 2021


The Florida hacker who staged a brazed BTC scam last year in summer across high-profile Twitter handles, including those of Elon Musk, Joe Biden, and Barack Obama will be held in the prison for three years and also, probation of three years after agreeing to plead guilty.


Graham Ivan Clark, who was 17 at that time, was alleged as a youthful criminal for hacking twitter and taking control of some of the high-profile accounts, the state judge stated during a virtual hearing on Tuesday. However, Clark can serve some of his punishment at a boot camp. Also, the offender will get credit for serving 239 days in prison to date.


Also, during his probation, Clark also accepted undeclared, unlimited searches and will provide unlimited access to his electronic systems to those supervising his probation, including law enforcement officials of Florida.


Clark was arrested with two claimed co-conspirators a year ago after the July Twitter hack, in which more than 100 prominent accounts were hacked. The seized accounts tweeted connections to digital currency scams, netting the culprits about $120,000 at that point. Clark at first argued not guilty. 


The authentic reason for every one of these checks identifies with the criminal, deceitful takeover of many Twitter records, and afterward utilizing this fake takeover to persuade their victims to send digital currency to cryptographic money accounts heavily influenced by the culprits, state investigator Derrell Dirks stated during the meeting on Tuesday. 


Investigators accused Clark of 30 diverse lawful offense tallies, including fraudulent use of private info, organized fraud, accessing a computer without authority, and several counts of communications fraud. During the hearing, Clark and his lawyer, David Weisbrod, insisted that the entirety of the taken digital forms of money had been gone over to authorities for the purposes behind restitution.
