Stealing Wi-Fi Wireless illegal
Are you leaching broadband off your neighbor? Well, you better stop it or you might end up charged with a felony and slammed in the pokey with this guy…and they don’t call it the “pokey” for nothing.
Police have arrested a man for using someone else's wireless Internet network in one of the first criminal cases involving this fairly common practice. Benjamin Smith III, 41, faces a pretrial hearing this month following his April arrest on charges of unauthorized access to a computer network, a third-degree felony.
