Alleged hacker released on bail

A SHETLAND teenager was released on bail after appearing from custody at City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court on computer hacking charges.

Jake Davis, 18, is accused of unauthorised computer access and conspiracy to carry out a distributed denial of service attack on the Serious Organised Crime Agency’s website.

He only spoke to confirm his personal details.

He is to re-appear before Southwark Crown Court on 30 August. While on bail he is not allowed to have any access to the internet and has been ordered to be electronically tagged.

He was bailed to an address in Spalding, in Lincolnshire, where his mother Jenny has moved to three weeks ago.

The 18-year old, who has lived most of his live on the island of Yell, was arrested in Lerwick by officers from Metropolitan Police’s e-Crime Unit on Wednesday and flown to London. After four days of questioning he was charged on Sunday.
