Man Gets 18 Months for Hacking Missouri Police Union Website

December 08, 2015  | 

A man has been ordered to spend a year and a half in federal prison for a cyberattack that disabled a St. Louis-area police union's website during unrest related to the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown, reports the Associated Press.

Thirty-three-year-old Justin Payne was accused of using Twitter accounts to unleash the December 2014 cyberattack that overwhelmed the St. Louis County Police Association website. Authorities say his actions were part of the "Operation Ferguson" effort supporting protesters of last year's shooting death of Brown in Ferguson.
