The parents of a convicted teenage hacker from Norwich, who admitted they helped him transfer money from a confiscated bitcoin wallet, are due to be sentenced today (Wednesday).
She had previously been convicted of hacking TalkTalk when he was 16 years old. Although he was given a sentence imprisonment last month he was released immediately as he had already served time while in custody. But he was ordered to pay more than £ 400.000.
The hacker's mother, 44, who lived in Mounteney Close, appeared Monday in a courtroom called Norwich Crown and County Courts on Monday and said guilt on the crime of transfer of foreign property.
He stated in court that between August 3, 2018 and September 6, 2018, he "transferred cryptocurrency, ie transferred these funds beyond the controls of a confiscated wallet hardware, knowing or suspected of being directly or indirectly involved crime".
Gunton's father, Jason Gunton, 45, a resident of Sunderland Close, admitted the same charge at a previous hearing. He also admitted that he had distorted the course of the case and its opinion justice.
Both must return to court on Wednesday to be convicted. "Judge Stephen Holt told Carlie Gunton that everything seemed to be based on helping her teenage son." He told her: "Your intervention will not really help your son."
