Accused LulSec hacker Topiary released on bail

"Jake Davis, an 18-year-old from the Shetland Islands, was released on bail after being charged with five offences relating to computer attacks and break-ins by the LulzSec and Anonymous hacking groups. Davis was granted bail to stay with his mother at their new home in Spalding, Lincolnshire, on condition that he does not access the internet either directly or through anyone else. He also has to wear a tag to ensure a 10pm to 7am curfew. Davis, whom police believe used the online nickname “Topiary” and was a member of the LulzSec and Anonymous hacking groups, was arrested at 2.10pm last Wednesday in Mid Yell, an northern island of the Shetlands. Jake Davis allegedly had the login passwords of 750,000 people on his computer."
