A court in central France has convicted a young Frenchman accused of
infiltrating Twitter and peeping at the account of President Barack Obama, and
given him a five-month suspended prison sentence.

The lawyer for Francois Cousteix, whose online name was Hacker Croll, said
his client was happy with Thursday evening’s decision by the Clermont-Ferrand
court. He risked up to two years in prison and a 30,000 euro fine for breaking
into a data system.

"The verdict is satisfying, given all the media pressure that built up,"
attorney Jean-Francois Canis said Friday by telephone.
