Teen Sentenced in Hilton Sidekick Hack

A Massachusetts teenager who was behind the hacking of Paris Hilton's T-Mobile Sidekick has been sentenced to 11 months in a juvenile prison. The 17 year-old hacked into T-Mobiles computer system in January and looked up information on customers, including Paris Hilton. At the time, T-Mobile promised a full investigation of the incident.

The hacking and subsequent display of the data on Hilton's cell phone revealed the numbers and e-mails of stars such as Rapper Eminem, actress Lindsay Lohan, Usher, Fred Durst, among others. As part of his sentence, the teen was banned from using any kind of electronic device capable of accessing the Internet for a period of two years.
