Siggi ‘the Hacker’ Sentenced

By Iceland Review

Sigurður Ingi Þórðarson, a.k.a. Siggi the Hacker, was last week sentenced to three years in prison and to pay his victims ISK 8.6 million (USD 67,000, EUR 60,000) in restitution and over ISK 6 million (USD 47,000, EUR 42,000) in legal costs, reports. In August, Sigurður confessed in court in Reykjanes to having sexually assaulted nine boys. The sentence was handed down last Wednesday.

The indictment reveals that Sigurður abused one of the boys 40 times in two years when the boy was 15-17 years old. Most of the victims were 15 or 16 years old at the time of offense. Another boy was abused 15 times in two months.

Sigurður promised the boys money, travel abroad, and computers. He also offered to hack the computer systems of their schools to alter their grades and attendance records. All this he promised in return for oral and anal sex. He approached the boys via social media, mostly through Facebook.

Sigurður confessed to all charges brought against him. He had previously received an eight month sentence in February of 2014. On December 22, 2014, he was sentenced to two years in prison for falsifying documents, embezzlement and fraud, as well as damage to property.
