RT reports, Karen McCutchin, Brown’s mother pleaded guilty last week to a charge of obstructing the execution of a search warrant. She could face a maximum sentence of 12 months in prison and a $100,000 fine. Sentencing has not yet been scheduled.
On March 6, 2012, officers with the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Brown’s Dallas, Texas apartment in an attempt to execute a search warrant for computers that could contain information involving hacker group Anonymous and LulzSec.
The feds hadn’t found all the computers they were looking for during a search of Brown’s apartment that morning and Brown, located at his mother’s house, refused to volunteer them.
The Dallas Observer reports McCutchin is not, like her son, facing 100-plus years in prison. Under the deal she struck with the feds, she faces a maximum sentence of 12 months in prison and a $100,000 fine. Sentencing has not yet been scheduled.
