In Surprise Appeal, TJX Hacker Claims U.S. Authorized His Crimes
Kim Zetter reports on an appeal filed by Albert Gonzalez. Gonzalez has asked for his guilty pleas to be overturned, claiming that everything he did (his criminal acts) were at the behest of the Secret Service and that he did not know that he could offer a Public Authority defense.
In writing his appeal, Gonzalez criticizes his former counsel, who returns fire in statements issued.
Read Kim’s coverage and view the filing on Threat Level. I look forward to hearing what criminal defense attorneys have to say about his chances of prevailing in this appeal.
