‘KYAnonymous,’ who drew attention to Ohio rape case, indicted by federal grand jury

Greg Kocher reports:

Deric Lostutter, the Clark County online activist known as “KYAnonymous” who helped draw national attention to an Ohio rape case, was indicted on four felony counts Thursday by a federal grand jury in Lexington.

The indictment says Lostutter violated the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act when he “knowingly and intentionally joined and voluntarily participated in a conspiracy” to access a computer without authorization. The purpose of the conspirators was to “harass and intimidate and to gain publicity for their online identities,” the indictment says.

The indictment does not identify Lostutter’s co-conspirator other than to say that the person lived in Virginia and used the online identity of “JustBatCat.”
